Amy Donaldson: Grantsville softball coach Heidi Taylor teaches more than technique
They know the life-altering impact of a coach who cares.
So they wore the wristbands to show their support, and Bingham felt their love.
He’s doing well since the surgery, he said.
“I had a lot of cancer, but it hadn’t spread to my lymph nodes,” he said. And anyone who knows anything about cancer knows what a blessing that is.
“That was really good news,” he said, in his matter-of-fact way. “I still have to go in for tests now and then, but I feel good.”
A few weeks ago Bingham and Taylor met on the softball field for the first of their regular-season meetings. Both teams played well, with the Bears edging the Cowboys 4-3. The Bears are tied for the region’s top spot with two games to play, while Grantsville is in third place.
And while one could learn a lot from watching these two talented softball teams battle each other on the field, one could learn even more watching how they treat each other off it.
