I am a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. I believe in sharing my talents and experiences by giving back to the community by giving my time to coaching, church and especially to the disability community. I truly believe that all men and women are created equally.
As many of you know, we have a Challenger Baseball Disvison right here in Cudahy. With the help and support of the Cudahy St Francis Little Baseball Association we have grown our league from about 8 kids 3 years ago to 23 kids today. Some of the challenges that the the kids face range from Cerebral Palsy, to Down sydrome, from Autism, to Fragile X syndrome and everything in between.
This morning the Brewers, along with the Pepsi Refresh Project, announced they want a Miracle League in Milwaukee. A Miracle League provides individuals with physical and/or mental disabilities a safe place to participate in baseball. The fields are designed to be accessable for those who are in wheel chairs or are blind. The restrooms as well as the concession stands are designed with these individuals in mind.

Hopefully the Brewers are successful in making the field come true and the kids who participate in Cudahy will have the ability to participate in some of the games. We have a couple of weeks left in the season. If you would like to see the kids play, our games are Saturday mornings from 8:30 to about 9:30
As most of you know I grew up near Chicago and the motto was "Vote Early and Vote Often"
