On Monday night, a six-year-old baseball player with cancer was awarded with the first ever Murfreesboro Baseball Association MVP trophy.
Colton Sheets has been fighting leukemia since he was just three years old.
Despite his illness, Colton has played t-Ball for the Cubs in Murfreesboro for the past three years.
The team is coached by Metro police officers and brothers Keith and Kenneth Stephens.
The coaches lost a sister to leukemia and understand Colton's battle.
"I'd take 13 Coltons any day, with the heart he has and all he wants to do is play baseball," Keith Stephens told Nashville's News 2.
While on the field, Colton is treated like the other players and is expected to give his best at each game.
Colton continued to play for the Cubs until midway through the 2012 season when he learned he was no longer in remission.
"Sometimes I hate being sick," Colton said.
His mother, Jennifer added, "He was in the middle of playing with his team and was finally doing better this year and was playing really good and then this happened. It was like the rug was pulled out beneath him."
Colton immediately underwent aggressive treatment at an area hospital before returning home on Friday.
During Monday night's tournament game, Colton was awarded the first ever Murfreesboro Baseball Association MVP trophy.
His teammates also gave him cards while he was at the ballpark cheering on the Cubs.
All of the kids in the park gathered on the Cubs' field prior to the game to honor Colton.
