Caleb to hit Home Runs for Chance Veazey

Chance is a freshman at the University of Georgia (where Caleb will attend) who was in a scooter accident a couple of months ago.  Barring a miracle the doctors are saying he will never walk again.

Chance Veazey, son of Todd and Darby Veazey, was a 2009 superior honor graduate from Tift County High School.  He has a sister, Carly, who is a senior at the University of Georgia.  In the summer of 2008, he was one of 20 juniors chosen to represent Georgia in the Sunbelt Classic in McAllister, Oklahoma.  He led the team in batting average and was selected to the “All Tournament Team”.  He was a 4 year starter for his High School team.  His Senior year, Chance played SS and led the team in 14 categories including: most singles, doubles, HRs, highest batting average-444, highest OBP 573.  He was Team Captain, named MVP and best offensive player.  He was selected 1st All Region and 1st team Tift Area.
Chance signed a Baseball scholarship with the UGA and was set to be the starting Second baseman.  Chance hit 316 in the fall with the fewest strikeouts on the team.  In his final game he was three for four, with his last as bat being a homerun off the scoreboard in right field.  Two days later, Chance was injured in a scooter accident leaving him paralyzed from the waist down.  On October 30, he had surgery to stabalize his spine and then was transferred to the Shepherd’s Center in Atlanta where he rehabbed until January 8th.

Chance is learning to adjust to life in a wheelchair and plans to return to UGA in the fall where he will then resume his education and return to his UGA baseball family.
Chance loves to hunt and while still an inpatient at Shepherd’s he shot an eleven point buck just four weeks post surgery. While we continue to pray for a miracle in Chances’ life, his goal is to get better and stronger each day.  He clings to his favorite Bible verse,Phil 4:13 “I can do all things through Christ who strenghtens me.”
