Regular readers of my blog (all three of you) know well my antipathy for professional sports, including major league baseball. Every once in a while I read something that cause a tiny tear to flow and makes me wonder if maybe, just maybe I should rethink my boycott – at least of pro baseball.
Heck, the Rangers will be admired across the whole country, really, after they used their 33rd-round selection in MLB’s amateur draft to select Bulldogs junior outfielder Johnathan Taylor on Wednesday afternoon.
Normally that wouldn’t be very newsworthy, but Taylor is paralyzed from the waist down and confined to a wheelchair after a tragic on-field collision with teammate Zach Cone in early March.
That’s a classy move.
