Wanted to tell you that I shared your son’s story to my 15 year old daughter and her friends this weekend. She is s sweet girl who is deeply spiritual. We went to lunch Saturday and I wanted to share with her how his life, and legacy had shared God’s word to so many people even today, six years after his passing, even here in Memphis, as we talk of a boy who wrote a scripture in all of his baseball caps. I shared the link to his Memorial Tournament and, of course, my daughter has put in her request for some bracelets from the website, which I will do this week. I also spoke to my Sunday school class (2nd Grade Girls) about his story. I just want you to know that I really do believe that God, however hard to understand, has a reason for everything. Your son’s story, his goodness, his faith and devotion is a story I’m sure has been told to thousands and thousands of people over the years through your baseball tournament and all the others his life has touched. And how amazing that his story reaches out across the miles so I can share it now.

Anyway, I get teary thinking about how a young man with a sharpie and a baseball cap continues to spread God’s Word, and how so many in the world will fall so short in our long lives of what he did in his small gestures of faith…

I’ll send you proofs sometime tomorrow.



Hello, Mr Crawford. I just wanted to let you know that your son’s memory lives on and his story inspires and touches people through this tournament. My 7 year old is proud of wearing his necklace and telling Brian’s story. He insisted we buy a necklaces for his brothers at home and told them why these necklaces are so meaningful. Our team didn’t place (which usually is a deal-breaker for Wyatt) but on the way home he said, “mom, we need to enter this tournament next year so we can help Brian’s mom and dad build a park to remember him. God Bless!


I hope the tournament was a success for you. I thought your tournament was ran well and good quality umpires. We really enjoyed coming down and playing.

Let me know when the event will be next year and where you will have it. I might also bring down my other sons team.

We were glad we were able to attend your tournament, and very much appreciate your efforts.

Mr. Crawford,

It was a pleasure meeting you this week-end and I sincerely appreciate the time you took to speak to our boys about Brian. Your words truly touched all of us, parents and sons alike. We were fortunate enough to play some good baseball, and our 13U Titans took home the championship. My son told me on the way home that this was the most important trophy he ever won – not because of the baseball that was played or the size of the trophy, but because of what you told him about Brian. I sincerely wish you the best in meeting your goal and seeing Brian’s park become a reality. You put on a fine tournament and it’s a tremendous reflection on Brian. Thank you.

My son will be playing in the tournament this weekend and I was looking on the webpage for directions and such. Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss.

Your son was a very inspriational young man. I wish that there was no need for this stadium and that you didn’t go through what you have gone through.

You have done an outstanding job on the webpage and I feel like I knew your son. I am sitting here with tears in my eyes because I can only imagine the heartbreak you and your family have gone through. Thank you so much for sharing your story with the world and letting us help you by participating in this tourny.

I can’t wait to see the Brian Allen Crawford stadium. It will be awe insprining without a doubt.

Let’s play ball…………..
