The word-less, but powerful, encouragement of a friend

By Vinton Today · April 27th, 2018
Sometimes a great friend knows just what you need to hear. And sometimes, a great friend can say it without using words, as this story from Fenway Park demonstrates. Despite his 3-0 record so far, the 2018 baseball season has been anything but a breeze for Boston Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriquez.

Have you ever eaten at The 4th St. Diner, located behind the green door at 202 E. 4th Street? Come and bring your family, if they aren't in school! EVERYONE is welcome!
