Im so sorry to hear about this amazing out going loving man... rick was the best person I couldve every met. He was at almost every softball tournament, upping half my games and of course giving the team a hard time. Rick stone was the light of the field no matter what. I just seen him this past month in Lubbock, told me my sweet baby bump is the cutest. Asked where my sister Morgan was so of course I had to go and get her! Sadly we only seen him once that weekend. Prayers to the family, hes forever known

So very sorry to hear the passing of our favorite ump. He always cheered on the girls and was always fair. He knew my girl by name and would always tell her Emma Maye you better do your job and not let me get hit! He was a great guy and Im glad I got to know him. Orange Crush will miss him dearly! Prayers for the whole family.
