Claude Osteen's small world

Sunday, July 29, 2007

Former major league great Claude Osteen returned to his alma mater Saturday night at Forrest School as the guest speaker at the Forrest Alumni Banquet and talked about the small world we all live in and his experiences from his boyhood in Caney Springs to his 33 year career in Major League Baseball.

"It's a small world when you look back on life," Osteen opened his speech by saying.

"All of my friends and relatives here tonight, all of you have molded my career. I have been a lucky guy; I have seen so much of the world through baseball in my years as a player and a coach."
