TULSA, Okla. - A group of former softball players in Tulsa got together on Saturday evening for a friendly game in honor of their late coaches.

Cathy and Evan Crocker died last week in a boating accident at Keystone Lake. The married couple had coached the Titanium team for several years.

Many of their former players remember the Crockers as selfless and very caring.

"They were truly wonderful people. They gave everything they had even when they couldn't," said Chelsea Prock.

The couple started "Flights for Lights" five years ago and gave free helicopter rides to children battling cancer. They would take them up a helicopter and fly across Tulsa to see the bright lights during Christmas.

The softball players said they want to continue their legacy and raise money for the program.
