Caleb lived to play baseball. He loved the game and his teammates. If he wasn’t playing baseball he was fishing or playing volleyball. He never stopped. He had a smile that was contagious and light up the room when he walked in. He always offered a lending hand when needed and had a heart of pure gold. He will be truly missed. Our hero. #PlayLikeCaleb
