Thanks to the Grandyman


I interviewed Curtis Granderson during the 2016 World Series in his hometown of Chicago, the morning after he received the prestigious Roberto Clemente Award for his humanitarian efforts, especially helping children. He was giving a tour of the new University of Illinois-Chicago sports facility that he made possible with an endowment. After that interview, I asked him what hit meant the most to him and why, and the result is on page 37 of DIAMONDS FROM THE DUGOUT. I hope you will enjoy Curtis' offering, complete with a powerful everyday life lesson. I extend my thanks to the Dodgers' left fielder, a 300-double, 300-homer club member and postseason regular, for the kind book recommendation that he posted on Twitter!
