Over four days in late January, the Starkey Hearing Foundation created miracle after miracle, by giving the gift of hearing to hundreds of people, young and old, living in the Dominican Republic. Starkey has been coming to the Dominican for 14 years, mostly in the capital Santo Domingo. The frequent trips are necessary because the humid, salty air affects hearing aids quicker than air in other places around the world.
When you think of a summer evening at the ballpark, a vibrant scene of sights and sounds will flood your mind. The roar of the crowd, the crack of a bat and the vendors shouting up and down the aisle. It all adds to the experience and magic of the game. However, some athletes experience the game in silence. They cannot hear.
It’s a hot, sticky day in the Dominican Republic and the clouds are rolling in. Hundreds of people have traveled to Santo Domingo for help because they can’t hear well. A crew of 50 people are here for them.
It’s finally happening. After weeks and months of planning, the trip I’ve been dreaming about is now just days away. I can almost smell the warm, salty Caribbean air. And I can now share this exciting adventure with all of you.
The Minnesota Twins announced Tuesday morning that they’ve added a seventh coach to their staff, and it’s a name with plenty of local flavor. Paul Molitor will join the staff as Twins officials said he will oversee base running, bunting, infield instruction and positioning and assist with game strategy.
Paul Molitor is a baseball legend. Joe Mauer is working on becoming the same. But there’s a local athlete with ties to both of them who is better than both of them – at his sport, at least. Cale Leiviska is Molitor’s nephew. “That’s what I grew up doing was playing baseball,” Leiviska said.
