PUNXSUTAWNEY â€” Current Cincinnati Reds' and former Punxsutawney Area High School catcher Devin Mesoraco, known for his generosity to the Make-A-Wish campaign in Punxsutawney over the years, is displaying his Christmas spirit in another manner related to his lifelong-dream-turned-career this year by contributing to the renovation of the Rich Kuntz Memorial Field complex this week.
This Christmas is a very special one for me, as it is my first as "Uncle Zak."
My gorgeous niece came into the world in January of this year, so this is her first Christmas, and although she lives more than 2,000 miles away in Canada, she's spending her first Christmas in the States with us.
Emma Jean has brought joy into the lives of us all, and we're all incredibly excited that she is visiting us.
And personally, she has given me a renewed sense of the giving aspect of the Christmas holiday.
