I have been watching that for a few days now. Its one of those stories to get you up when you are down.

I have a few thoughts about the story.

1) You also have to give Jason McElwain credit for his attitude. He truly deserved that experience.

2) You have to credit the coach for giving him a chance. Some coachs would not have even let be the manager.
I believe all the coach was looking for was to get him some reconition for his hard work as manager, and wow, he gave so much more.

3) What are the chances a skilled and gifted athlete could do something like that and only had one shot to do it let alone a kid with a disability. A miracle? To me it is proof there is a god.
