4/11/07 - Steve Palermo
For those who don't know Steve Palermo's story, he was one of the best umpires in Major League Baseball. One night in Dallas, he was having dinner when he saw a lady get mugged, so he ran out of the restaurant chasing the thief. He was shot by the thief and paralyzed. Through rehab, he was eventually able to walk with assistance. A true hero. I send him this magazine, along with an inspirational quote, even though I'm sure he's heard most of them before. He wrote back with a short note and included a quote of his own.
