The year is 1985 before the symptoms of MS began. I was leading what most would consider a normal life for a newly married, young, working mother. A typical day for me included: getting up, taking a shower, dressing, brushing my teeth, getting a one-year old ready, fixing and eating breakfast, driving to day care and then on to a full day with my first grade class.
A year later in 1986 my body started to change. It started with a tingling in the little finger on my left hand. This tingling eventually progressed to the entire left side of my body. During this year I went to many doctors and had numerous tests preformed. The tingling would at times get worse or go away completely. The doctors and my family were baffled!
Washington Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman tonight was named the recipient of the 2010 Louisville Slugger Silver Slugger for National League third basemen. The Silver Slugger citation is the second of Zimmerman’s career. He earned his initial Silver Slugger last season.
Zimmerman recorded arguably his finest offensive campaign in 2010, hitting a career-best .307 (161-for-525) with 32 doubles, 25 home runs, 85 RBIs and 69 walks in 142 games. In addition to hitting .300-plus for the first time, Zimmerman also established career highs in on-base percentage (.388) and OPS (.899), a metric which combines on-base and slugging percentages.
On July 31st a Funfest Bike ride orgainzed by Scott and Ellen Wallace (Scott is Cheryl Zimmerman’s brother) benefitting the ziMS Foundation took place. The bike ride started in Brunswick, Maryland and the 54 riders pedalled 55 miles along the Potomac River to Key Bridge (Rosslyn) in Virginia. After the bike ride the participants enjoyed a reception and an evening at the ballpark. This event was a huge success raising over $33,000 for the ziMS Foundation. Thank you Scott and Ellen.
“We’ve gotten better and better each year. That’s the goal,” stated Ryan Zimmerman. “We obviously started and really had no idea what we were getting into and just wanted to do stuff to help. Over the last five years it’s grown more than we could ever think we could imagine. And this (a Washington, D.C. venue) is a big stepping stone for us. We think from here, it could take off. The sky’s the limit from here.”
