JUPITER — A high school baseball player from Texas was flown to St. Mary’s Medical Center in West Palm Beach this morning following a collision with a teammate during a tournament game at the Roger Dean Stadium complex.

The player – identified as Conner Fikes – collided with teammate Jarad Wilson, 18, during a game as both tried to catch a pop fly.

“They ran full speed into each other,” said Jim Barr, parent of a Royal Palm Beach High baseball player who played in the tournament.

Wilson walked away with a broken nose, but Fikes remained unconscious on the field for about 15 to 20 minutes before the Trauma Hawk helicopter arrived, said Brad Clement, vice president for development with Perfect Game USA, the event’s organizers. [More]
