It was a moment they'll never forget. Three Southeastern baseball players, alongside their coach, saved a woman from a burning wreck of a car in the great north of Kelowna, Canada. The players were headed to a summer league game for the Port Angeles Lefties, when SLU catcher Evan Pace says they saw smoke coming up out of a ditch alongside the road.

Pace says he and his teammates, Trey Morgan of West Feliciana, Kyle Schimpf of Covington, and Coach Darren Westergard, weren’t sure what to expect running up to the vehicle. Pace says once the smoke had cleared the athletes had gained a new friend, getting to enjoy some time in the car on their road trip before delivering the woman to safety.

The three players are playing summer league baseball in the Pacific Northwest in the West Coast League. A summer college league based between Washington, Oregon, and British Columbia.
