Love of baseball seeds dreams

    Keenan Longcor would always feel a little nostalgic twinge when he drove past a baseball field. It would remind him of the great times he’d spent with his son, Ben, bonding over their shared love of baseball.

    A good many of us understand. Baseball is one of those generational things – a shared passion that fathers and sons and mothers and daughters and grandfathers and grandchildren can relate to. A day at the ballpark can be a wonderful pastime that turns into a great memory.

    Longcor, a fourth-generation Oregonian, did well with his businesses over the years. He always wanted to leave a portion of his estate to something that would help area baseball and baseball players.
