Sun Jun 18, 2017 - Dan Napper, Correspondent

When an athlete is forced to channel the last ounce of energy that their body contains to pull their team to a victory. It creates a rush of adrenaline and the hairs on the back of the neck begin to stand. The crowd fades away and it comes down to just that moment in time. The world around goes quiet and the focus becomes so adept that time itself seems to slow down. The only thought running

Tue Nov 22, 2016 - Dan Napper, Correspondent

Jarred is a kid who played every sport as a young boy and began to fall in love with baseball more and more as his teen years approach.
