Presley Mitchell was doing what she loved most, playing softball for the Texas Attitude 12U team, getting hits and stealing bases when the 11-year-old suddenly collapsed on the field during a tournament on Saturday at Texas Health Foundation Park in Denison, Texas.
She was taken to a nearby hospital where she passed away, according to a report by KXII Fox News 12.
The cause of death is unknown at this point and the Grayson County Medical Examiner is investigating.
Mitchell's aunt, Lori Skipper wrote in a Facebook post, "Her life was softball where she was playing a tournament and collapsed on field in her favorite place. She did not come back. God needed her right then even tho we are so lost."
Mayes Elementary school students all wore their sports jerseys at school today to honor their fallen classmate:
