More About Me:
I am fortunate to have two (2) sons loving and playing baseball, like I did years ago. I'm a lifelong fan of the game (so that makes it 43 + years, since I'm now 50) it's people, and it's special place in everyone's heart. My Dad taught me how to play, I taught my sons, and I know they will teach their sons. Two months ago, I was contacted by Bob Salomon with "A Glove of Their Own" and asked to help his team promote the book. It's an absolutely wonderful story about "Giving Back" to those less fortunate, and transcends generations.
