Joseph Feeley

Former Liberty baseball player Joseph Feeley passed away last week, succumbing to his recent battle with cancer.

Feeley was an outfielder for the Flames baseball team during the 2008 and 2009 seasons. The Chesapeake City, Md., native played in 68 games and started 38 contests, helping the Flames record back-to-back 30-win seasons. He posted a .274 career batting average, with five doubles, a triple, a home run and 23 RBIs.

Feeley's funeral service is scheduled for later this evening at Glasgow Church at 7:30 p.m. Members of Liberty's baseball team and former classmates of Feeley's from his high school, Red Lion Christian Academy, will be gathering in the Crowder/Muckel Fieldhouse to watch a live video stream of the service. The service can also be viewed by clicking the "Watch Live" link at www.glasgowchurch.com.

The Liberty University Athletics Department and the Flames baseball program would like to express their deepest sympathies to the Feeley family, especially to his parents, Joseph and Karen Feeley.
