Thom Loverro: Lannan a leader in giving his time
Question of the Day
“Stras is a good kid,” Lannan said. “He is getting his feet wet. He seems like he has a good head on his shoulders and seems like a down-to-earth kid.”
It takes a down-to-earth kid to know one. Lannan, the first Nationals player to plant the community service flag at the ballpark, shows where his feet are planted.
“These kids who have life-threatening illnesses where normal treatment hasn’t worked,” Lannan said. “The goal with Lannan’s Cannons is to get these kids out here to enjoy a baseball game with their families. I think it’s a great program, and I’m really glad to be part of it.
“It would be good to get more players involved,” Lannan said. “You have to realize we are a new team here, and things like this are getting started. We are trying to reach out to the community.”
They will, if they follow the leader.
