I’ll get right to the point — about which my husband would say “Ha — as if you could ever pull off getting right to the point without a meandering story to go along with it!” (Up yours, honey. How’s that for succinct?)
I want to thank the readers who saw my post about the Honorary Bat Girl contest sponsored by Major League Baseball, and voted for my friend and fellow little league team mom Krista McElwain. Krista was nominated by her amazing daughter Sarah Grace, who wrote a very moving essay.
I am pleased to report that Krista was selected as the 2013 Baltimore Orioles Honorary Bat Girl! Here is her daughter’s essay:
To honor Krista, the little league team is organizing a group outing to Oriole Park at Camden Yards on Tuesday, May 14, so that we can all be there when she throws out the first pitch. The boys on the team are going to wear their uniform jerseys, which have been adorned with the breast cancer ribbon for the past two years.
I hope you will take the time to read the stories of all the amazing winners, who, like Sarah Grace and her mom – live with HOPE.
To all those whose mantra is “fight like a girl” – you are an inspiration.
