A Father, His Son, and a Cruel Summer at Carson Park

Ken Szymanski

Volume One writer Ken Szymanski believes that every sports season is a story, and every player is a character. Over the summer of 2013, he heard about an Eau Claire Express player with an unusual background. The player's host family suggested that this young man would make a great story. As Szymanski paid closer attention in the newspaper, on the radio, and in person at Carson Park, he realized they were right ... but in an unexpected way. Enjoy the story in Szymanski's own voice.
