Coomer was in the 1999 All Star Game and came to bat to start off one of the inning. Whatever inning it was was the inning that Carlton Fisk went out to coach first base. Fisk is my mother's favorite player so I snapped a picture that has Fisk in the coach's box with a big sign on the scoreboard announcing Coomer coming up. If you don't know it's Fisk it looks like I was very excited that Ron Coomer was coming to bat.
"Coomer, who plays third base for the Minnesota Twins, and the former Red Sox catcher became acquainted 15 years ago when he was a student-athlete at Lockport High School in suburban Chicago. Fisk relocated his family to Lockport when he left the Red Sox for the Chicago White Sox after the 1980 season. Fisk, whose three children went to Lockport High, began working with Coomer on hitting during the winter months when both were idle."
