After listening to the podcast I started to think about the possibilities of an All Star Diabetes Baseball Team. Obviously Sam Fuld will be on the roster and starting in right field. Type 1 athletes Mark Lowe and Brandon Morrow have secured spots in the bullpen. Dustin McGowan will be starting for the All Diabetes All Stars, you will notice in that article that Brandon Morrow is mentioned in that article as well. I have been unable to reach Morrow for comment but I believe he has assumed the position of General Manager for the All Diabetes All Stars, he is doing a great job of finding baseball players with diabetes.
Right now that roster looks a little bare but the hope is that teenagers living with diabetes will one day reach the majors and make the All Diabetes All Stars. That may take sometime, in the meantime I will be working as hard as I can to setup a diabetes softball tournament. Four teams will be involved, Team Fuld, Team Morrow, Team Lowe, and Team McGowan. Each roster will be made up of teenagers and adults that are living with diabetes. All money raised will go to a diabetes research foundation. This may take a year or so to setup but with the help of the hundreds that read this blog we can hopefully make this dream a reality!!
