What Does Love Look Like? for This Family, It Looks Like Baseball Over Cerebral Palsy.
By Michael Harrell
Johnny Agar has lived with cerebral palsy from birth. Not only is this a daily physical struggle, but for father Jeff, it is also a brutal emotional struggle. The former pro ballplayer was never able to teach his son to bat, to throw, to play catch…but it’s the power of the game, the emotion, the investment that brought this family together. Wow.
