Contrary to popular belief, Danny Hall actually does own a championship trophy.
It might not be the one he really labored for. It might not be the one he dreamed about. For that matter, he’s not even sure exactly where it is in the house.
But he forever may be indebted to those eight-year-olds from the Wills Park youth league in Alpharetta.
“I helped coach a team four year ago because my son, Carter, was on it,” Hall said Friday. “They ended up winning the Dizzy Dean World Series. After the game, I told those kids, ‘However long I’ve been in baseball, I’ve never been part of a World Series champion. So I want you to understand how special this is.’ That was it. That’s my claim to fame.”
Not quite. But we get the joke.
Hall has Georgia Tech in the NCAA baseball postseason for the 14th time
