A 1st baseman with the California Thunder Girls Travel Softball Team has died days after having a brain aneurysm on the field.

Dana Housley was playing in a game Saturday May 23rd, 2015 when she reportedly told her coach she felt dizzy and collapsed. Family and teammates had held out hope the 15-year-old player would survive the traumatic event but after several days on life support, on May 27, Dana passed away at Kaiser hospital in Fontana.
