“I worked hard to get dad into the state hall of fame in 2012, which would have been the year of his 100th birthday,” Lance said. “I put together all the information available and sent it to the state softball people and never heard a thing back from them. Then, suddenly, I receive a letter saying dad was accepted into the hall of fame this year.
“We are very pleased and happy,” Lance said. “Now, we can get to work on a national level.”
