1: Hey guys - thanks for helping out and contributing. This page will eventually be a dedication type page, but right now it makes for a good note board! :) Just wanted to share a few notes on the book.: 1. I would like to keep the book in order by last name (maiden), so just add your pages then you can drag them into order. 2. The other formatting that I think would look good and tie everyone's pages together would be to put our last names (maiden) at the top of our "Then" pages as well as the years you played for Walt along the bottom of that page all in the same font and size. So, if you want, you can copy mine from my page and edit for yours. 3. I would also suggest that you use a decent size font on your pages. Remember Walt is 75 and his eyesight isn't what it used to be. Other than that, have at it and knock it out of the park!! You can upload your own backgrounds to use too. And if you need a photo editor, I have really dug the Picasa editor which is a free download. ~Boo

3: I played travel ball with Amy Harris until 2002 when I had to have shoulder surgery. The next year my Elijah was born and I haven't played ball since. The love for the game is still there although it seems to have skipped over my child for now. I just pray that he has a Walt like I did to instill drive and determination in him.

7: I live in a small town in Illinois with my husband John and our six children. We have his, mine, and ours (like the movie). I played softball until about 3 years ago. We have 5 athletes and one bookworm! My two girls both play softball, and our life is full of endless hours watching sports events.We love every minute of it!!
8: Boo Chambers - I learned that fly balls are outs; that you move on every ball; that if someone gets their arm stuck in one of those toy crane machines you are supposed to leave them in there; but the greatest lesson I learned from you, Walt, is that the most important thing you can give someone is your time. Thank you for making a difference! | What I learned from Walt... | Julie Oakley - I learned to answer to "OAKLEY!"; that Shoney's was the breakfast of champions; hard work does pay off. Most importantly, I learned that someone that pushed you so hard, really cared and made a positive influence on my life as a person, teacher, coach and parent. THANK YOU!
9: Chris Bolin- I learned that everyone has a part to play and that makes a Team! Walt taught me that can't is not a word and you have to push yourself to your limits to go farther. Thank you for all your endless hours you dedicated to us and for always making us go the extra mile, even when we didn't think we could...I tell my kids that coaches like Walt are hard to come by!! Everyone should have a Walt in their lifetime..
