LOGAN All-Stars play ball with the SB Cubs

The only thing better than (or at least as good as) hitting a home run is hanging out with the players who do.

The event is something South Bend Cubs Manager Jimmy Gonzalez says is important to the entire organization. “We’re blessed to be able to be in a community like South Bend and just to give back is an awesome opportunity,” Gonzalez said.

DeShauntae Williams, better known around LOGAN as Snookie, “volunteered” to ride in the chair. She said it has been a dream of hers to run in LOGAN’s Run, so now she gets her chance. Fleet Feet provided the chair in 2016, so Heath White, that year’s Nose-On speaker, could run with Mary, a LOGAN residential client. This year, a team of Fleet Feet Ambassadors plans...
