It is ironic that this picture popped up in my Facebook memories today. James "Moonman" was the first base coach on this team and many others. James and Dean always opened up their home to me, and I was there as much as my own house growing up. He grilled the best steaks and grew the best veggies in his garden. James was one of the kindest and best men I knew. He always had a smile on his face. The only time I ever saw him mad was either because of a ballgame or me and Jamie being up to something. He and Dean raised an amazing family, and he will always live on through them. I am praying for comfort for the Chapman family. Love you all.
