So happy to see the Alabama Crimson Tide in the NCAA Regional Tournament! I know that there are 64 great teams in the regional field, but no one nearer and dearer to my heart that this group of young men!
First of all, these guys have surpassed most pre-season expectations! They are a fun group to watch. It's never over until it's over could be their motto - they simply do not quit! With lots of young guys making contributions, the future is bright for this team!
Most importantly, this team is made up of guys - coaches and players - with great heart and great character. When not playing baseball, you can find them out in the community involved in various areas of service - especially the Miracle League and Sprayberry Education Center. They delight these same groups with invitations to games at "The Joe" always treating these special children and others with love and respect!
You may say that I am cheering with a Mother's heart and there's no way they can make it to Omaha, let me just say you never know where hard work and discipline combined with heart and character will take you.....maybe all the way to Omaha!
Roll Tide and God Bless the Alabama Baseball Team!
