Umpire Cody Coffman Killed in California Mass Shooting

Camarillo Pony Baseball lost its umpire-in-chief, 22-year-old Cody Coffman, in Wednesday's Thousand Oaks, California mass shooting at the Borderline Bar and Grill.

"He loved working with the kids."

Cody's father, Jason, spoke with local media Thursday, recalling the last conversation with his son before Cody left for "College Country Night" at the bar.

According to a friend, Coffman died trying to save others: "He was protecting everyone."

Conejo Valley Little League remembered Camarillo's UIC Cody in a tribute on its Twitter page: "Hug your players close tonight, as Camarillo Pony Baseball mourns the loss of former player, current umpire and dad, Cody Coffman. We at CVLL extend our sincerest condolences to the league and the family of this fine man."

At least 12 people lost their lives during Wednesday's mass shooting.
