SALE CREEK, Tenn. (TFP) -- Sale Creek softball coach Clifford Kirk collapsed along the third-base line during the seventh inning of Wednesday night's Region 3-A high school championship game against Whitwell.

As Kirk stepped from the third-base coach's box to motion toward a runner on second base, he stumbled and fell onto the field. Several fans rushed onto the field to roll him over onto his back and begin chest compressions while they awaited paramedics.

Paramedics arrived within minutes and continued to administer to him. He was taken by ambulance from the field to a local hospital.
