VERMILLION COUNTY, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — Tuesday evening, a local baseball team played their game a little differently in honor of a fallen teammate.

Cameron Cheuvront of Cayuga passed away last week following a deadly crash on the intersection of State Roads 234 and 63. Cheuvront has been on the North Vermillion Baseball team for over three years and played third base. So, at the start of the game, during the first batter, the team kept third base open in his honor.

Head Coach Robby Davis said this was a special moment for the team.

“Being able to play a game that he loved to play. It just kind of seems awesome to play because it was something he wanted to do and enjoy it for all of them. They get to have a piece of that.”
