    Thank you Jojo for this thread. My eyes misted up when I read about how the boy had cancer and how the players then reacted.

    There's a little bit of that little guy in all of us. Great stuff from Hayhurst.

    That was awesome. Just read the one about the kid with liver cancer.

    Thanks for sharing this.

    Spectacular stuff.
    Maybe the guy won't make the bigs (though I suddenly find myself hoping he does make that long shot), but I have a feeling he does have a very bright future.

    I just got done reading a section where Greg Maddox sat in on a talk with he and his fellow pitchers. Some very good stuff, as well - and a reason I would have loved to see the Reds pick up Maddox. He might not win a lot of games as a pitcher, but I believe his knowledge could have helped in the future.

    I really like Newsome's post about Pedro Viola, too. Really a terrific group of blogs.
