Tragedy in Tierrasanta Little League

Please keep the Boldt family from Tierrasanta Little League in your thoughts and prayers. Their son, William suffered a tragic accident earlier this week.  As a result of his injuries, it is with deep sadness that we share that William passed away.  William was a part of the Tierrasanta Little League community for several years and was currently a player in the Majors Division. William was a valued teammate, and friend to many throughout TLL. A GoFundMe account has been set up to help the family with whatever they need during this most difficult time that parents will ever have to go through. If you haven’t already, please consider a donation to the family. https://www.gofundme.com/.../support-for-william-boldts

Pictured is William receiving the game ball after a solid hit to right field which allowed his team to come from behind and score this 2 run RBI. Following the game his teammates nicknamed him "Walk Off Will".

Rest in Peace William
