Laguna Beach Books Meet Laguna Beach Author Alicia Rowe and Skippy Carrillo Thursday October 26 2017.
This is a Laguna Beach Free Event.
Author Alicia Rowe will be discussing her book Have A Home Run Day.
Have A Home Run Day is about her brother Skipper Carrillo.
Skipper Carrillo is the extraordinary man known as “Mr. Home Run Day.”
Born prematurely, Skipper grew up with a disability that gave him a unique ability to express love with a pure heart and spirit.
His avid love of sports earned him a position with Laguna Beach High School back in the ’60s.
In 1987, the school recognized his legacy by naming their baseball field in his honor.
As the man who originally coined the slogan “Have a Home Run Day,” Skipper spreads his positive message wherever he goes.
His Skipper Carrillo Scholarship Fund provides assistance to high school seniors who have overcome adversity.
Skipper is and always will be one of baseball’s great ambassadors of good will.
