August 5th

 

Shawn Garrett, a Kinmundy, Illinois native, is now playing with the Sacramento RiverCats, the Triple-A farm team of the Oakland A's. 

Of course we have a special interest, not only because he's an alumni of the same grade school and high school that I (Dolores) attended,  he's also our cousin.

Kinmundy (population 900) is your average small midwestern town with with the pride and values that come with it.  Shawn's great-great-great-great-grandpa Garrett settled on a farm just northwest of Kinmundy back in the late 1820's, and his family has called it home ever since.  Shawn has a ton of relatives that still live in the area including parents, grandparents, uncles, aunts, and a whole bunch of cousins.  Since Kinmundy is situated in the bottom third of Illinois, and is about 80 miles straight east of St. Louis, he naturally grew up an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan.  Right there we knew he had good taste.   

Shawn started out playing little league in Kinmundy, then played for South Central High School, the consolidated school of Kinmundy, Alma, Farina, and St. Peter. After graduation he went on to play college ball at Olney Central College in Olney, IL.

Our family has been fortunate enough to get to watch Shawn play on three different teams.  We saw him in Lake Elsinore, CA, Tulsa, OK, and Colorado Springs, CO.
