Rehobeth Rebel brings everyone together
REHOBETH, Ala. (WTVY) - A Rehobeth Rebel baseball player brought two Wiregrass rivals together after experiencing an injury on the diamond.
Catcher John Carter Chumney suffered the injury during a matchup with the Carroll Eagles, and had to be taken to the emergency room.
Coaches from Carroll rounded up players from both sides for a prayer circle at the mound while Chumney was attended to.
Chumney left the field giving a thumbs up, with the extent of his injury unknown at this time.
While the Rebels did go on to win the game over Carroll 2-1, the biggest victory was news from Chumney’s father, who says his son is home from the hospital and recovering.
