Cavaiani on Curtis: "I was lucky to run into Luke during my time with the Panthers and I was immediately impressed with his poise, confidence, and his ability to relate to kids of all ages. It didn't come as a surprise to me that Luke was training to be a police officer soon after his retirement from professional baseball. Luke was the first person I reached out to when I made the decision to start this program and he jumped right in with me. I'm thankful for him believing in me and my vision on what I wanted to accomplish. I have 100% confidence in everything he does and I couldn't have found a better, more honest person who possesses such a wide range of knowledge that goes beyond baseball. I'm hoping every kid that comes through our doors gets the opportunity to listen and learn from him."
