Michael Perez was playing softball on Saturday, March 30th when he suffered serious head injuries and was flown to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.  Perez's injuries include skull fractures, fractured eye sockets, a broken nose, a concussion and bleeding in his brain.
Perez was admitted to Harborview's neurology ICU where neurosurgeons and plastic surgeons have him under close observation due to the severity of bleeding from two frontal lobe injuries.
Perez will undergo multiple surgeries and a long recovery period over the next several months.  The road to recovery will be lengthy and expensive so friends have organized a GoFundMe page to help the family with expenses
