We did it! We made it back to the Charlotte Knights game - just FOUR WEEKS after my daughter's foul ball accident. Everything was perfect.
The Knights staff who came to visit us in the hospital, and who have been in contact ever since the accident, hooked us up with special seats for the evening. We started the night in the Diamond's Direct Luxury Lounge, where we were treated to a buffet in an air conditioned lounge, alongside the suites. While we were getting the extra special treatment, our goal was still to RE-DO the evening, including getting the kids back on the field for pregame activities... just like last time.

Months ago we began planning an end-of-school trip to see the Greensboro Grasshoppers with the children to celebrate another year of hard work complete. On June 8th, our Greensboro trip also became the rebirth of a relationship between baseball and our family.
As you may have read, only two weeks prior we stayed local to watch our hometown Charlotte Knights on a Friday night. City views, fireworks, and the highest level of minor league baseball was what we ordered for the evening. Things quickly changed...

Two weeks after her serious injury and one week out of the hospital, Katelyn blessed the trip to Greensboro as planned. She understands that accidents happen. She’s so tough and strong, truly fearless and became a hero to many because of her bravery. She handled the hospital and all the various procedures with a positive attitude and a grateful heart. I am happy to know her, let alone play a large part in raising her! In times of crisis, I am most proud then to see my influence on Katelyn and her brother, Colin.
