READING, Pa. -

A youth baseball coach who passed away this year is being honored for his work with the RBI League in Reading.

The family of Leon Gibbs was emotional as a tribute to Gibbs was unveiled at Gordon Hoodak Stadium on Tuesday.

Gibbs' son spoke about his dad.

Police said Gibbs fell asleep at the wheel of his car just before it crashed on Route 222 in Maidencreek Township last month. He died a short time later.

A banner celebrating Coach Gibbs now hangs above center field at the ballpark.
