Citizen grateful for fans’ quick action

Dear Editor,

THANK YOU!  THANK YOU! To everyone who rushed to my aid last Thursday night. My family and I were enjoying a Pulaski Yankees baseball game until I was hit by an errant foul ball that came to rest in my mouth after removing my front two teeth. Before I could breathe I was surrounded by people who knew what to do. When the Yankees Manny Ozoa took over I knew I was in good hands. The entire Yankees organization has been wonderful to us. After receiving all of the care I could receive at Calfee Park Erin and Kevin from Regional Emergency Medical Services continued to treat me and transported me to Pulaski LewisGale Hospital. My wife, Ruth Ann, and I appreciate the care we received from the time I was hit until we finally left the hospital at 5:30 Friday morning. By the way, Jordan Scott is not only a great baseball player, he is a class human being! It was not his fault the ball he hit went foul but he showed real class in expressing his regrets and the promise of prayers. I spent the first 65 years of my life in the Carolinas but it surely does feel good to be spending my later years in Pulaski County, VA!
