Randy Had A Bucket Of Old Baseballs Laying Around And Decided To Put Them To Good Use...Here Is The Original Tweet From His Grandson, Ethan Anderson
Randy Had Dropped The Bucket Off At Some Nearby Batting Cages. He Also Left Behind A Handwritten Note. The Note Reads...
Hope someone can use some of these baseballs in the batting cages. I found them cleaning out my garage. I pitched them to my son and grandson for countless rounds. My son is now 46 y/o and my grandson is 23 y/o. I am 72 and what I won't give to pitch a couple of buckets to them. They have both moved away. If you are a father cherish these times. You won't believe how quickly they will be gone.
Give them a hug and tell them you love them every chance you get!
