Baseball fan gets Twitter response and more from his favorite player

  • Published in Sports
In this new social media era, you can always attempt to converse with your favorite Athlete or Celebrity.  Typically you get no response, but sometime you get lucky. 
 
On this day, Alex Berg, a Minnesota Twins baseball fan got his wish.  He tweeted "Got screwed over online on the Twins tickets I bought last night for today's game. Any chance my fav.player @glen_perkins could help me out?" 
 
Minutes later, Glen Perkins, a Twins relief pitcher responded by asking how many tickets he needed!  Next thing you know Alex, his girlfriend, Grandma and Cousin all had tickets to the Twins game that day! 
 
Alex tweeted again...but this time it was a picture from the ball game! :-)
 
 
Have a great day, and let the Good News be yours,

A ball boy's wish comes true

  • Published in Sports

Ted Kremer’s dreams and wishes came true the day he was honorary bat boy for the Cincinnati Reds. Earlier in the year Ted’s parents attended a fund raiser where they won an auction for their son to be a bat boy for one Cincinnati Reds game. On the day of the game, Ted had two simple requests from the ball club… 11 strikeouts for free pizza and a home run from his favorite player Todd Frazier. On that day, both of Ted’s wishes came true! Ted was born with down syndrome and doctors originally said the he would likely never smile, talk or walk. Ted’s smile couldn’t have been any bigger that day on the diamond in Cincinnati. The Reds may want to keep Ted as their bat boy full time for the future!

Have a great day, and let the Good News be Yours!

Ken Griffey Jr. helps fan replace stolen memorabilia

  • Published in Sports

All seemed lost to Chris Fevurly and his son Nolan after burglars stole their collection of Ken Griffey Jr. baseball cards and their electronics.  Fortunately good people came together and made all the difference.

Their friends and neighbors created fundraisers to get them a new big-screen TV and helped replace some of their baseball cards.  The greatest gift of all came when the man, the myth, the legend, Ken Griffey Jr. himself called them on the phone!

How'd it go down?  Chris and Nolan received free court side seats to the Wichita State basketball game. During the game, another icon, Roberto Clemente Jr. walked up to them with an autographed picture of Ken Griffey Jr. along with a phone call from the man himself.

They may have lost some "stuff", but they now have some amazing memories and new merchandise from friends and family.  Great news!

And that's what's good,
Jon
