    Think about it, and consider the likes of Danny Crolley, Gene Wallace, Charles Mathis and Furman Hance.
    Lancaster, in relation to sports, wouldn’t be where it is without those selfless men, who, in baseball terms, stepped to the plate and delivered each time, even with a wicked curve tossed their way.
