YOU GOTTA HAVE BALLS: A BRANDON STEINER EXCLUSIVE). In a nutshell, if you need help like Larsen did, you reach out and he'll run the darn thing.

Brandon Steiner, founder & CEO of Steiner Sports, said: “this was
the company’s biggest auction ever and the relationships we have with
the athletes is what this is all about.” Gotta love that quote. Think
about it for a second... I always talk about the fans and players
relationship and how I wish that the interaction would be better... Like
the old days. Steiner makes that possible.
Don Larsen is concerned, he said "I am just delighted, and
relieved, too...This will sure take care of the college education of my
grandchildren, and leave a few dollars for a nice family vacation. I’m
happy that the uniform worn on my greatest day has found a great home
for a long time to come.”
A happy story all around. People taking the time to help each other,
showing kindness, from Larsen, to Steiner, and the trend will continue
somewhere else in America every second of the day. You gotta love
humanity and human decency. In the end, Larsen's grandchildren, Cody
and Justin get a good education and then pass the torch being kind to someone else at some other time in their life... and so on and so
