Former Reds Batboy and "Good Luck Charm" Will Be in Fort Thomas
Teddy Kremer says of his inspirational story, "Nothing—not the state championship, Disney World, President Obama waving at me, or getting my own baseball card—can top the night of April 18, 2013. On that night, I was at the Great American Ball Park as batboy for the Cincinnati Reds. It was the second time I was the Reds’ batboy.
The year before, I was an honorary batboy for the Reds because my parents won a bid at a silent auction. When I walked on the field in that first game and met the players, it was so exciting! That night the Reds hit seven home runs and Manager Dusty Baker said, 'Seems you’re our good luck charm, Teddy.' I guess that’s why they invited me back.”
Also to be signed by Buchanan and Lang is their book Fat Boy Chronicles [Sleeping Bear Press, $9.95 pb]. In Fat Boy Chronicles, readers see the emotionally-painful world obese teens experience in the face of a thin-obsessed society. Schools around the nation are using the novel and movie to generate discussion about bullying and childhood obesity. Family dynamics, bullying, health and fitness, sibling relationships, and isolation are all a part of Jimmy Winterpock's story. Whether in health, science, language arts, math, or art class; whether with students, parents, educators, youth groups, or counselors, Fat Boy Chronicles provides a starting point for important dialogue.
