A Rochester Boy Fights Cancer and Teaches His Team an Amazing Lesson
The announcement came the other day...there may be no minors season for youth baseball this summer. Jessica Williams wrote about it here.
If your child is at St. Francis, Holy Spirit, Bamber, Folwell, Jefferson, Hoover, Gibbs, Bishop, Elton Hills, Pinewood, YOUR TEAM HAS NO COACH. YOUR SEASON WILL NOT START ON TIME. It is critical to have volunteers to head coach, individually or as a duo/combo, our 7 remaining minors teams.
If a person or people do not volunteer, there will be NO MINORS SEASON. This is serious. Your kids want to play. Don't deny them the opportunity. - Rochester Youth Baseball Association
I didn't play youth baseball as a kid, but a TON of my friends did. And they'll all tell you the same thing. The lessons they learned were about so much more than baseball. Up above you see a video. That's Steve Lange telling an absolutely amazing story about Conner Johnson, a player that was fighting cancer and teaching his teammates the most important lesson they may ever learn.
