NORMAL, Ill. -- Heartland Community College honors one of its former baseball players.

Michael Collins was a starter during his sophomore year at Heartland Community College.

Collins died last month from injuries when an alleged drunk driver hit the car he was in.

On Sunday the Hawks coach and baseball players retired Collins' number 19 jersey.

Right now the retired jersey is hanging in the recreational facility until college officials designate a location.
