Eli Steps Up To the Plate...

I submitted a local baseball story to PBS's THE TENTH INNING website (about Ken Burns' upcoming baseball documentary) yesterday. This morning I awoke to an acceptance email.

I'm thrilled because my hometown player, Eli Gooselaw, was amazing but never got wide enough recognition in my book...

I grew up across the pasture from Eli when I was a little girl and never knew this about him until a few years ago. It just goes to show you, you never know who may be walking in your midst...
