To the editor:
Butch Hert has done it again. This last weekend he put on an amazing baseball tournament for our 13-15 year old Babe Ruth players here in The Dalles.
Each year this man gives endless amounts of time to the baseball players in our city by organizing tournaments, maintaining fields and keeping our local kids busy and out of trouble by getting them to play organized Babe Ruth ball. I, for one, admire Butch and all he does so selflessly to give back to the children of our community. He is a true gem, and I am proud to call him my friend.
Thanks, again, Butch, for a great tournament and congratulations to the local team for winning the tournament and advancing on to state.
