PLAYA DEL REY, Calif. -
Story published in the February issue of the Westchester/Playa Del Rey HomeTown News
My 4-year old son, Jack, loves baseball. When I say loves, I mean that if he has a choice, he'd rather watch a rerun of the Home Run Derby that we have on our DVR than any episode of Sesame Street.
That may be common with many 4-year olds, but in Jack's case, this passion could ultimately lead him to enjoy something that most kids his age take for granted--walking.
His motor skill delays are a constant work in progress, and I look for any and every form of motivation. Therapy is important and plentiful, but it's the unconventional avenues that seem to trigger the most challenge.
As a resident of Westchester since before Jack was born, I was accustomed to hearing the crack of the bat from LMU's direction. I never ventured into the campus to check it out, but being a sports fan myself, the sound always brought a smile to my face.
