In this episode of “The Journey of My Mother’s Son” podcast, I sit down to talk with Jennifer Hammond.

Jennifer and I connected a few years ago on social media when my old organization, the BIG Vision Foundation first started to organize the Ruth Hartman Memorial Girl’s Baseball Festival.

Jennifer literally eats, sleeps, and breathes baseball. I’m pretty sure that if you took an X-Ray of her chest, you would see a baseball beating as her heart.  At one point in her life, she said that if she could live on a baseball field, she would.  Her dream was very close to coming true when we were able to connect and talk at the Baseball for All Nationals as she was juggling her coaching duties between both the DC Force Girl’s Baseball team and the Alexandria Aces of the Cal Ripken Collegiate Summer League.

She is an amazing human and was recently featured in the Alexandria Gazette Packet for her trailblazing efforts in the game.  Still a young adult, she cherishes the time that she gets with her mentors like Jeneane Lesko and understands the importance of passing the torch to the younger generation.
