Yesterday I received a call from Adam Rivera, a Denton TBall coach, who asked to speak to Eastfield's Athletic Director. He called to compliment our baseball coach, Michael Martin.
A month ago Mr. Rivera and his TBall players were having lunch in the same restaurant as EFC's baseball team. Mr. Rivera asked Coach Martin if he would say hello to his young players. Not only did Coach Martin speak to the Tball players, but the entire EFC team joined him in giving "high-fives" to them.
Mr. Rivera said it really meant a lot to his team, and he wanted to let our Athletic Director know how much the behavior of our coach and team was appreciated.
