On June 26, 2009, during our 30 Ballpark Tour, we visited Tropicana Stadium in St. Petersburg, Florida. During this stop we met a very special young man, Nick Hamel. Nick is phenomenal! As you can see, Nick suffers from Spina Bifida and is confined to a wheelchair, but this doesn’t stop him from getting out to the ballpark. In fact, when he is not at the ballpark he is busy calling ballplayers across the country and catching up with them.
Now, his father, Randy Hamel has just released “Baseball’s Unknown Angel,” an inspirational book about Nick. Randy says that “this is a story of one child faced with incredible odds, but with the help of Major League Baseball and faith, not only persevered but influenced the lives of so many by his extraordinary acts of kindness and sincerity.” Nick definitely touched our lives!
Yesterday I got my copy of “Baseball’s Unknown Angel” and know that it will be an inspirational book. I whole-heartedly recommend this book to everyone.
