VICTORIA – A slo-pitch player on Vancouver Island has died, 10 days after suffering a severe brain injury when he was hit by a softball.

Chris Godfrey’s family says he died on Wednesday after being hit by a ball thrown from the infield as he ran for a base during a slo-pitch tournament in Comox on Aug. 19.

Godfrey, a husband and father, was not wearing a helmet.

He was flown to hospital in Victoria after the accident and remained on life support following surgery.

Friends, family and the Comox Valley Slo-Pitch League have all donated to a growing fund to assist Godfrey’s wife and one-year-old daughter.

The slo-pitch league has also implemented a rule requiring helmets for players, and other leagues across Vancouver Island say they are considering similar rule changes.
