My Two Cents: A Night With The Jackson Generals

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterJackson, TN – During a family vacation this summer, my family and I were blessed to meet a remarkable young man named Dusty Stanfill.  He was born facing challenges that most of us couldn’t imagine.  You can read his story here. I remember that all he talked about was his beloved baseball team, the Jackson Generals.  

Since returning from vacation, I had been trying to figure out a way to pay him a visit, so what better way than to surprise him at a baseball game.  So, working with some fabulous people at the Jackson Generals, I straddled the Harley and took off.
