  • Senior Spotlight: Brady McDowell

    BROWNSTOWN – Running around his grandparents’ living room after hitting imaginary home runs some 15 years ago was just a preview of what was in store for Brady McDowell’s life.

    The Brownstown senior hasn’t stopped hustling since, and now pays tribute to his late grandpa, Dale McDowell, every time he cranks one out of the park.

    There was always a wiffle ball in a vase at grandpa’s house, McDowell remembered, but little did he know that the make-believe games from his childhood would become his reality.
