    I wish to send my regards to Jason Hill and family. I will never forget the great times we all shared playing baseball 20 years ago…What I learned from Mr. Hill in life is priceless…My most vivid memory is when Mr. Hill would take a picture of us with his camera…which as we all know, Mr Hill never had a camera 99% of the time…it was the fact that he made us laugh and pretend that our picture was taken….
