12-year-old Little League World Series player suffers severe head injury after falling from bunk bed in dorm

According to his family, a Little League player who was severely wounded after falling out of a bunk bed during the 2022 Little League World Series is no longer sedated and is interacting with his doctors.

Easton Oliverson, a 12-year-old pitcher and outfielder for the Snow Canyon All-Stars from Santa Clara, Utah, fell from a top bunk early Monday morning and broke his skull, resulting in internal bleeding.

They went from enjoying the highs of the highs to then suffering the lows of lows, and he’s just battling for his own life, Easton’s dad, Jace Oliverson, explained.

According to pictures on the family-run Instagram account @miraclesfortank, Easton was transported to a neighboring hospital and is showing signs of progress after a successful surgery.

This morning’s updates had them all in tears of happiness, a Tuesday post stated, displaying a snapshot of Easton and a video of him eating from a spoon in his hospital bed with his eyes closed.

While Easton is making remarkable improvement, he still has a long journey ahead of him, his family said in the statement.

In a statement, Little League said it communicated with Easton’s family and was “happy to hear that his medical team remains optimistic by his development.” In a separate statement, Little League said it will eliminate all bunk beds from the dorms.

Little League stated that since 1992, Little League has employed institutional-style bunk beds to provide the maximum room for the players to spend their stay in the dorms. Despite the fact that these beds lack protection rails, Little League is unaware of any significant accidents happening during that time period. Little League has decided to eliminate all bunk beds from the dorms and place each bed frame on the floor individually out of caution.

Easton has received support from all across the world, even from his own little brother Brogan, who is traveling in to cover his brother’s slot at the World Series as an alternate.

They are excited to report that Brogan has been asked to replace Easton on Team Utah for the World Series event, Snow Canyon Little League wrote in a social media post. He is overjoyed not just to be able to participate in this once-in-a-lifetime chance, but also to play for his big brother who will not be able to.

Brogan and the Snow Canyon Little League, Utah’s first Little League World Series team, play their opening game of the series Friday afternoon.

Mookie Betts of the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Brigham Young University football team both expressed their support for Easton on social media.

“Hello, this is Mookie Betts. I just wanted you to know that we’re praying for you and thinking about you, and I hope to see you soon, my guy” Betts stated this on Wednesday.

Easton’s family is equally enthusiastic about his chances of recovery.

“It’ll take some time,” Easton’s father expressed. “It’ll be a long journey for East, however they have a lot of trust that he’ll be able to live the life they’re hoping for.”
