This story was a very delightful romp through history, with a great twist of learning a Biblical truth along with the wisdom of those who came before us.

Thank you for sharing your words, it was truly a joy to read it!
As a baseball fan and youth baseball umpire who has officiated on the youth fields in Cooperstown ... I really enjoyed this. Satchell Paige really was one of the greats. The wisdom in his words and life still live today.

This was very well written and made history come alive. I enjoyed the conclusion about reaching forward to the things and places God has for us. Very nicely done!
Wow - different and totally on topic. This was out of the box creative...and being a baseball fan, my husband and I have gone to Cooperstown so many times, so this story was close to my heart. Nicely done.

God Bless~
Excellent in every way in my humble opinion! Thanks for writing such an interesting article and for the way you made it come to life.
I found this to be interesting and a refreshingly unexpected direction for the topic. I am not a sports fan at all but I truly enjoyed this insightful look at a sports legend and seeing the biblical message you have pulled from his story. Great job.
Excellent writing! Good, strong sentences that moved the story along. Even as a non-sports person I was fascinated. I do have one question about the very first word. Would nestled have been better than nestling?
This is by far my favorite entry. It covers so many things: the injustices done to our fellow human being because of race, the courage and ability to overcome, that age doesn't always define or hinder the athlete, and of course, the wonder of baseball. On that note I say "Go Diamondbacks!", my favorite team. (just had to throw that in). Great writing and an enjoyable read. I hope it places well. God bless!
Oh I so enjoyed this. I live a mere 4 hours from Cooperstown and always intended to take my son there. This story brings everything to life for me. I feel like I'm right there seeing it play out before my eyes. You handled the topic in such a creative way. It was a joy to read this.
