When we moved to Oak Park 20 years ago, Mike Brady was our daughter's T-ball coach on the Mighty-Mighty Pirates. Although I tried, in all my later years of coaching softball and soccer I never came close to matching Mike's gentle, positive approach to working with kids. A great man and a wonderful coach.
