RAYMORE, Mo. -- A group of 12-year-old baseball players are honoring fallen police officer Brad Lancaster by wearing KCPD hats.

On Sunday, the group with Building Champions Baseball Academy played a game at Raymore Recreational Park wearing the hats as a tribute.

"We wanted to do this so we could honor the policeman who died; we thought this was very important to do," said Cal Goddard, who plays on the team.

Some of the players wore KCPD hats and others wore Missouri State Highway Patrol hats. The group said it is in honor of Lancaster and also a part of National Police Week, which honors those who have served or died in the line of duty.

The coach for the team said 30 percent of the proceeds from the hat purchases will go to the Lancaster family.
