Texas – Jacob Parrott with Patti Johnson

Jacob Parrott has partnered with Patti Johnson for Home Runs that Help 
When Texas native and full-time baseball mom Patti Johnson met Jacob, she knew her son Luke had found a true baseball soul mate. Over the next few years, the boys played and developed together – forming a friendship on and off the field that’s endured the test of time, even when Jacob eventually moved from their shared hometown of Boerne, Texas, to the Dallas area.

Over the Thanksgiving holiday in 2011, Patti, mother of three, was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Not willing to even consider defeat, she’s fought and is winning the battle.

Patti’s determination, will power and positive attitude inspire Jacob to triumph in any situation. He dedicates his Power Showcase Home Run Derby opportunity, and the first long ball he’s able to hit, to “Miss Patti” and the Johnson family.
