Thank you for your article about home town boy George Grantham; it was fascinating. I've loved baseball all of my life. Played when I was a kid, coached my sons little league and collected baseballs cards along the way. So I really enjoyed reading his story.

Not everyone delves into the players that far back in baseball, but the story of our own hometown player is something to be mighty proud of!

Hopefully you will inspire some young people to start playing the great American sport of baseball.

Thanks and keep up the good work!
