Susie Atkins Paves the Way for New Baseball Facility
Here’s my latest piece on fightingillini.com.
Susie Atkins grew up with baseball. Listening to games on the radio with her family and helping her father when he coached Little League teams instilled in her the importance of teamwork, the guiding principle of good sportsmanship, and a sense of fair play.
These ideals have stayed with her over the years and are now embodied in a $3 million donation to the University of Illinois baseball program to create the Susan and Clint Atkins Baseball Training Center.
