I love JESUS! I'm a 7th-generation Florida native, dyed-in-the-wool Southron belle. I just recently dusted off my genealogy notes and, thanks to a long-lost relative, nearly doubled the details. We started home schooling when only 'outlaws' did it and still enjoy a daily quest for knowledge. These days, the family spends a lot of time birding, butterflying, spending as much time in 'the woods' as possible while they're still here.
On April 4th, 1919, during a spring training exhibition game at Plant Field (later named Pepin-Rood Stadium), Babe Ruth hit one of the most memorable home runs of his career. It traveled an estimated 587 feet, which would make it the longest in baseball history. A plaque marks the site.
