Local Author Celebrates Local Hero
Local author Alicia Rowe will discus her book, “Have a Home Run Day!” about Skipper Carrillo, at 5 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 26 at Laguna Beach Books, 1200 S. Coast Hwy.
Skipper Carrillo, who will attend the event, is the extraordinary man known as “Mr. Home Run Day.” Born prematurely, he grew up with a disability and an ability to telegraph his always joyous spirit. His love of sports earned him a position with Laguna Beach High School back in the ’60s, the honor of their field being named for him and the establishment of the Skipper Carrillo Scholarship Fund, which provides assistance to high school seniors who have overcome adversity.
