  • Hooper honored by Lawrence High School

    http://www2.ljworld.com/news/2008/ap...r_honored_lhs/

    He has an American League championship ring from the time he spent with the Detroit Tigers. During his days at Wichita State University, he was a two-time All-American and took the field at Rosenblatt Stadium in Omaha, Neb., for the College World Series.

    Yet Wednesday, as he settled into a spot in front of the mound at Ice Field, Kevin Hooper felt a rush of adrenaline.

    Hooper, a 1995 graduate of Lawrence High, was in town to have his number dedicated by the Lawrence High baseball program. Even with all of his past successes, the significance of the moment was not lost on the former Lion.

    Thanks for posting that. Hooper was a special player and a genuinely great person. He's my "poster boy" for how the game should be played.
