In Bartow County, Georgia, the local baseball community is in mourning after a tragic incident on the field. During a game at the “Shamrock Classic” tournament in Emerson, Doug Davis, a coach for the 14U team, suddenly collapsed.

Canes Sports Performance, where Davis coached, shared the heartbreaking news of the incident that occurred on Friday. The event has left the team and its supporters in shock.

Coach Jeff Owens revealed that Doug Davis suffered a massive heart attack. While Owens confirmed Davis’s passing, he did not clarify whether the collapse on the field was the direct cause of death.

Owens recounted the immediate response to the incident, stating, “As soon as it happened, myself and the rest of the coaches rushed to Doug. Nurses and doctors in the stands quickly joined us on the field.” He described the experience as one of the most devastating he has ever faced.

The park fell silent as players and spectators gathered to support Davis’s family during this difficult time. In honor of Davis, Canes Sports Performance has planned a devotional service. This will take place on Saturday at 1 p.m. at Lakepoint Field in Emerson.
