My Friend Broke His Neck

My friend broke his neck.

The moment his head hit the sand bar he knew he was going to die.  He couldn’t feel his body and the waves kept pushing him back down to the ocean floor.  What was going through his mind?  I’m sure he said a prayer.  I’m sure he thought about his wife, son, and daughter.  I wonder if he thought about his baseball career?

My friend didn’t die. He lived and the story is amazing.  He is in Spring Training right now trying to make a team.  But I am not going to tell you the rest.  My hope is that reporters start asking around.  They can find him and it will be the biggest story of Spring Training.

Happy hunting.

PS…To My Buddy, I know you wanted to keep a low profile, but people need to hear this story.
