The Groesbeck Lions Club installed its new officers and directors at its regular meeting at Mi Rancho Restaurant on Wednesday, July 14.
My son Jackson Tatum and my great-nephew Noah Jackson were members this year of the Groesbeck 8u Coach Pitch team, coached by Alfred Jackson, Elgrick Tatum, John Diaz and Jason Nemons. These coaches emphasized hard work, dedication, teamwork and sportsmanship. The team worked on fundamentals and developed skills that translated into success on the field. My father, Raymond Carl “PeeWee” Jackson Sr. loved baseball. The love of the game continues in his grandson Jackson and great-grandson Noah.
