Event with Alicia Rowe & Skipper Carrillo

On Thursday, October 26 at 5 pm, Laguna Beach Books is pleased to welcome local author Alicia Rowe. Alicia will be discussing her book, Have a Home Run Day! which is about Skipper Carrillo. Skipper will be at the event as well.
Skipper Carrillo is the extraordinary man known as "Mr. Home Run Day." Born prematurely, Skipper grew up with a disability that gave him a unique ability to express love with a pure heart and spirit. His avid love of sports earned him a position with Laguna Beach High School back in the '60s.
In 1987, the school recognized his legacy by naming their baseball field in his honor. As the man who originally coined the slogan "Have a Home Run Day," Skipper spreads his positive message wherever he goes. His Skipper Carrillo Scholarship Fund provides assistance to high school seniors who have overcome adversity. Skipper is and always will be one of baseball's great ambassadors of good will.
