“The last time I talked to him, he wanted me to hit a home run. I told him I’m not sure I could do that, I’m not that big type of player that hits home runs.”

On Tuesday afternoon, the day before his grandfather’s funeral, Jonathan Sabo played ball. On a 0-2 pitch, the Charleston boy did what he’s never done in his life.

His coach Randy Carlson says he even tears up recalling the story of the ball that should have gone foul.
