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!

A lifesaving gesture from coach to player

  • Published in Sports

When being recruited to play college sports, often coaches will tell you that you are coming to their University to become part of their family, and that means making sacrifices for one another.  Tom Walter, the baseball coach for Wake Forest University made this promise quite apparent.

Kevin Jordan was a freshman outfielder for Wake Forest when he found out the terrible news that he needed a kidney transplant. He was diagnosed with ANCA vasculitis which left his kidneys functioning at 8 percent. Kevin’s family was tested and no one was found to be a match for the transplant.

That’s when Coach Walter took initiative upon himself to get tested. Coach Walter found out he was a match and told his team and family that he would donate the kidney to his player. The operation went well and both men are expected to make full recoveries.
