A Day With Delmon

On Saturday, July 17, Minnesota Twins outfielder Delmon Young visited the Rolling Twins wheelchair softball teams at a parking lot in Brooklyn Center, where the teams were having a scrimmage. The Rolling Twins teams are sponsored by Courage Center, which is a Minnesota-based rehabilitation center for children and adults with disabilities. Young made the visit in honor of Mike Laven, a former Rolling Twins player who died last season. Young played briefly with the Rolling Twins, getting a base hit. Afterwards, Young said wheelchair softball is very difficult and admired that five teams play in a wheelchair softball tournament.

This was a very nice gesture by Delmon Young. Sports players should always be involved in their communities. To meet a baseball player (and a very good one) must have been a wonderful experience for all the Rolling Twins players and coaches.
