Personal Note - Steve Potter


My family is in town to celebrate my daughter Michelle’s graduation from nursing school. Of course I had to show them the complex and watch a little bit of baseball 🤓. While there multiple players stopped by to say hello - Albert Jerez gave my grandson Isaac a pair of batting gloves and Edward Barboza gave him a bat - they made his day ! Thanks to them both 🤓👍.
