The Young Man and the Sea

For years, the Dodgers have been teaming up with the Daniel Hernandez Youth Foundation to bring inner-city children the chance to go on a fishing trip while hanging out with a Dodger player. This year's host was Brent Leach:

Brent seems like a cool guy.

Bet they don't have fishing like that in Albecracky.

I don't think he played in Albercracky, but I do think that it is great the dodgers and other professional teams do things like this, children really do look up to these guys.

My mistake. Still, no ocean near Chatanooga.
Good kid.
