I know you don’t know me but, I grew up in Luverne a number of years ago and

I enjoy keeping up with all of the local new via the Luverne Journal each week.

I very much enjoyed see the photograph of Coach Daniel and caption concerning his throwing out the first pitch for the opening of the baseball playoff.

I was very fortunate to be able to play baseball in the “Little League” and “Babe Ruth” League that Coach Daniel created back in the 50’s and 60’s. I eventually went on to play Baseball in High School for Coach Daniel with some great athletes (Hamp Russell, Butch Norman, Wayne Rolling, David West, Mike Stroud) just to name a few.

The values and principles that Coach Daniel taught us both in the classroom and the baseball field are very important to all of us.

I wish continued good health to Coach. You are doing a great job at the Journal keep up the good work.

 

Sincerely,

Alton Kersker
