Geocache Description:


Tucker Helstrom was a boy living in the Hopkins community. He spent his short 9 ½ years playing sports, laughing with friends and family, and showing love to all, even after cancer forced the amputation of his leg. Tucker showed everyone how to live during his heroic battle with osteosarcoma.

Hopkins Area Little League (HALL) honored Tucker Helstrom, who died in 2016 at age 9. Tucker was an enthusiastic and dedicated HALL player who spent his spring and summers at Maetzold Field for the three years he lived in Hopkins. Tucker loved playing and watching baseball, but more than that he loved being a teammate and friend to everyone. During the 2016 season, despite battling osteosarcoma (bone cancer) and having only one leg due to an amputation in February, Tucker continued his participation with HALL as he was the assistant coach of his team and attended every practice and game when he wasn’t in the hospital.  Field 1 was renamed Tucker Field
