“We all have a tremendous responsibility in delivering important messages [to our youth]”, Ron tanner, from Confluence Business Advisors explains.
In an especially turbulent and chaotic time, American Legion takes on that responsibility; helping our youth turn into citizens we can all be proud of. And Ron Tanner reminds us the deeper game at hand too: “It’s not really that much about baseball. It’s about patriotism. It’s about honoring our freedom. It’s about learning how to be a man. Those kinds of experiences that I’ve watched these youngsters have and these coaches…the way that they dedicate themselves to mentoring. That’s been a huge…something I didn’t even expect.” It’s safe to say that it’s not just the players leaving everything they got on the field.
They say it takes a village to raise a child. We all find community in our own way and Natalie Head, Anderson Hospital representative, reminds us that American Legion has that place in our communities. Natalie says nothing but truth in the fact that, “American legion baseball is an American icon”.
She reminds us that events like this get our community active and engaged in such a healthy way. We get to watch the players “become active citizens. They become better people. And how can you not be proud to support something like that”.
