    OT: great story on GOLOBOS

    First Post Banner
    GOLOBOS has a wonderful story as part of their coverage of the baseball series at Air Force. "The series will be best remembered for the pregame "first hit" ceremony put together by both head coaches for Lio Ortega, a five-year old cancer patient and Lobo fan. Instead of throwing a first pitch, Lio, with Lobos and Falcons in the field and cheering him on, hit the first ball off the tee and raced around the bases (taking a very wide turn at third) for a Little League home run". The video shows this home run and is inspirational and, to me, unforgetable. The story of how this came to be is also a fine read.
