Jace Oliverson says his son Easton was off oxygen yesterday, and was able to talk and sit up in a chair. The 12-year-old fell from a bunk Sunday night, injuring his head severely enough to require surgery. Easton's ten-year-old brother has been picked to fill the open spot on the team roster caused by his injury. The Snow Canyon team is scheduled to play their first game in the Little League World Series tomorrow.
