Crutches 2 Champions
I'm a native of Corning, New York, who now lives in Cape Coral, Florida, with my wife, Camilla, our daughter, Elica, and son Trey. As an infant, I contracted polio that stunted my growth and left mewithout the full use of his legs. But despite that, and perhaps because of it, I was driven to excel in physical competition against so-called able-bodied people.
Imagine being 5-foot-2 and playing professional baseball. And not just playing, but also managing, coaching, scouting, owning a professional barnstorming team that toured the country, and traveling Europe as a representative of Major League Baseball. And along the way, he nearly got “the call” to the major leagues as a pitcher.
Now imagine doing it all on crutches due to polio.
