Dugout Doings: From Amarillo, Texas, to NYO

Dugout Doings: From Amarillo, Texas, to NYO

It's 1,106 miles from Amarillo, Texas, to Atlanta --- a 16-hour drive --- but that didn't keep Ray Link, 77, from seeing his 5-year-old great-grandson, Knox Koppelman, play at NYO. In town for a visit, Ray wasn't going to miss watching Knox for the first time.  Knox, who plays for the Shetland Blue Braves, is one of 26 great-grandchildren Ray Link said he has.

And what did Mr. Link think of his first visit to NYO? 'I've never been to anything like this. It's got more fields, it's got everything.' And granddaughter RheAnne Koppelman, Knox's mom, said Ray's visit and the Opening Day ceremony and game would be a 'memory (that will last) forever.'
