Baseball tournament honors Soddy-Daisy teen killed in ATV crash
A baseball tournament is honoring a Soddy-Daisy teen who died in an ATV crash last month.
Bryson Scott passed away after crashing into a telephone pole on Old Hunter Road in Ooltewah.
Sunday, more than 50 teams from six states played in the Bryson Scott Memorial Tournament at the Lakeside Sports Complex.
Organizers say baseball was his favorite sport.
"Let the sport he loved to play so much and he was so good at, this is how we honor him. this is why we honor him," organizer Jeremy Lewis said.
His mother tells us she's overwhelmed by the support.
"It speaks volumes. it warms my heart that all these kids are out here in memory of him and it makes a mother feel proud," Bryson's mom, Sonya Hudges, said.
The tournament was free for teams to play in. Organizers say all of the proceeds from donations and T-shirts sold will go to the family.
