Start here

I was sadden to learn of the passing  of Steve Palermo  Sunday  He served as a AL umpire from 1977 -1991  after a ball game in  Texas he came to  the aide of waitresses who were being robbed and he was shot  Despite being told by the  doctor he may never walk again  with in 3 months he with the aid of a cane throw out the 1st pitch at a world series game He contiuned his baseball life severing as an MLB umpire supervisior   He was know for his  honest funloving  manner .  he was always up beat whether it was facing life after his accident or the cancer that took his earthly life. It is that smile that warmth , and the determinaion which will live on those who knew him
