I wish to extend a huge thank-you to the Decatur Baseball coaches, players and parents for supporting my project, Real Stories, Real People. This past Monday evening I was asked to throw out the first pitch. This was both an honor and a humbling experience. My pitch soared sky-high and plopped down short of home plate. As I walked off the mound towards the dugout I was intercepted by one of the graduating seniors with an envelope which contained a very generous donation for my project. Despite my lackluster performance this was an evening that touched my heart and will always be treasured. The game ball sits on my desk, scuffed from bouncing in our red Georgia clay; a reminder of a special evening and a remarkable group of young men.
