Personally, I became a fan of Dave’s as soon as I read “Behind the Mask” years ago. Not only was there the immediate baseball connection, but the way Dave deals with life’s challenges is inspirational, no matter what issues a person may encounter. Finally, having Dave here at the New York Power Authority to speak with our employees for pride month was one of the highlights of my career. His message is clear, but the manner in which he relates his stories makes you feel that you are listening to a friend sitting in your living room. He truly impacted everyone in the room. My friend, my hero, thanks!
