GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Like a lot of high school baseball teams, the Northview Wildcats head to Florida every year for spring break.  Most of the time nothing out of  the ordinary happens, just some baseball and fun in the warm Florida sun.  But, last year things literally flipped upside down and a team's timely reaction proved costly for the life of a teammate.

"The boys were, you know, being boys, playing basketball, doing what we would want them to do, out having some fun and, yeah, a weird thing happened," said Northview baseball coach Jason Denton.
