Thank you St. Louis Cardinals 


I doubt any of you saw this first pitch last Thursday, but it marked a milestone on the comeback trail for a youngster who has suffered greatly over the past three and a half years. Young Tripp McNeil threw out the first pitch in the Cards win last Thursday. He survived a deadly fire. His Dad didn't make it, because he rushed back into the burning home to save his son. Delmer McNeil was a young father of 30 years. He was a star baseball player in high school. My son played Dixie Boys with him. Later he was my daughter's hitting instructor for fast pitch softball. Above all, he was a wonderful human being who is missed to this very day. So I just wanted to say Thank You St. Louis and the Cardinals organization for giving this little boy, who has endured multiple surgeries, a true thrill last week.
