Unusual to see this, but the post includes a CBS News piece that chronicles the story of Marti Sementelli, of Burbank, California.
I thought all of my "baseball comrades" would enjoy this!
Speaking of "baseball comrades", we met many of them in Kansas City this weekend at the USSSA Super NIT. My 13-year-old son Jay's team, the West Des Moines Mariners, made it to the Elite Eight this morning, but lost to the Oklahoma Bearcats. It was a GREAT weekend of baseball and fun. We were thrilled to be the only team from Iowa represented in the championship bracket - congrats, Mariners!
