San Jacinto College baseball team manager Diego lived out a dream verses South Suburban College on March 15th. After the official final out, Diego, or Coach Wheels to the team, took the field as a relief pitcher striking out the opposing hitter for the win, and was mobbed by his team in celebration. It was a touching moment that was only overshadowed by the size of Diego’s smile.
A special thank you to South Suburban College for helping make this special moment possible.
