Ontario — A TVCC baseball player was seriously injured during Game 1 of the Chukar World Series Friday.
Freshman baseball player Cory Holm of Emmett was injured in the bottom of the ninth inning, when Holm went crashing into the right center field wall. Holm is now recovering from his injury at St. Alphonsus Hospital in Boise.
Game two of the series was suspended allowing both teams’ players to show support for Cory Holm.
“The incident was a true testament to Cory’s mentality playing the game,” according to the TVCC website. The Chukars were leading, 13-5, when the injury happened. ”Up ten, down ten he plays with the same energy and intent every time he steps on the field.
“Nobody goes harder than Cory and each member of the Tigers and Giants will play with Cory’s energy and intent,” according to the website. “While Cory’s presence will be absent the rest of the series no one will forget what he brings to his squad and how much he means to the baseball program at Treasure Valley.
Commissioner Aaron Sutton said, according to the website, “Although Cory will not be out there competing with his teammates today; he will be in each and everyone’s hearts the rest of the way.”
