Great article by Joseph P. Kahn on Daniel Nava (August 11). I have known Daniel since he was a seventh-grader. I went to Stanford games when he was a batboy there, and I worked camps at Stanford when he used to climb in the net and shag balls for the coaches and bring us sodas. When he hit that grand slam in his first at-bat in the majors, a lot of local coaches were working together at a tryout at the high school where I have been the head coach for 32 years. There were 15 to 20 coaches with tears in our eyes when we heard the news. Seriously. Thanks for capturing the story.
