The Ohio Trojans Baseball Organization sends our deepest sympathy, prayers and support to the players of the Bluffton baseball team. We are blessed and grateful as an organization that one of our own, Cody McPherson has come home safe. We pray for Cody and his team to overcome these challenges that God has placed before them. In our thoughts and prayers are Coach Grandey and those players that still remain in the hospital.
“This is a sad tragedy for the students, families, friends and Bluffton University campus community. We are asking for prayers of support during this time.”
- Bluffton President James M. Harder.
Those players that have passed on to our Lord, Scott Harmon, Tyler Williams, Cody Holp and David Betts, memory be eternal.
