Tribute for 10-year-old little league player

Crowds gathered Tuesday to pay tribute to a North Mississippi little league player killed during a tournament over the weekend.

Friends, teammates and even complete strangers lined the streets of Byhalia as 10-year-old Lane Rodgers was brought home to be buried.

Rodgers was with his team at a baseball tournament in Tupelo, Saturday. 

He was trying to take shelter from a storm when a tree limb snapped, hitting Rodgers in the back of the head.
