“Way with words puts Valley boy in D-backs booth”
I’ve blogged a few times about my son Grant winning a contest which allowed him to go on air during a TV broadcast of Sunday’s Diamondbacks game.
Our many thanks to the charming Arizona Republic reporter, Lisa Nicita, for writing such a great story about Grant’s experience on Sunday, when he treated by the Diamondbacks and FSN Arizona to the best day of his life. Lisa stayed by Grant’s side pretty much the whole time we were there. I was worried that he would talk her ear off, but she assured me that in her business, that was a good thing.
(If you’re local, you can find this article in the Arizona Living section of today’s Republic.)
Grant Reill woke up at 5:45 Sunday morning and couldn’t go back to sleep. He had too much energy.
In just a few hours he would experience the “greatest thing that has ever happened to him.”
Grant, 8, would sit in a broadcast booth between Daron Sutton and Mark Grace and watch pitcher Randy Johnson take on the San Diego Padres. And he would be able to put in his two cents’ worth.
