Introducing Braeden Swilley of East Cobb. Braeden has been named the 2012 Little League Good Sport of the Year and was recognized for his “spirited and dedicated commitment to the ideals and goals of the Little League program.” Braeden will receive an award at the 2012 LLBB World Series this summer and I had the high honor of photographing him for the National Little League Association. One of these pictures will hang in their national museum. He and his family will attend the 2012 Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa. in August as guests of Little League. I am so proud of him. There are so many ball players in this world – if our children can be good sports…good people – what else could we want? This is the nicest young man and I am so happy for him! Also, his parents say that his great coach was a big part of this. Here’s to all you little league coaches out there that give your time and are good, fair and make such a positive impact on our young boys.
