Living His Dream from page 37

Ball boy Michael Higer at a perch
in left field

I only saw the back of his head,
but I figured it was him because
he responded to me and it was
his office. When I was leaving, he
turned around and it was Justin
Verlander; he and I both had a
good laugh.
I only worked two games during
the 2010 season, but, in 2011, I was
ready to work much more often. In
fact, I worked 25 games this season,
every day another amazing mem-
ory. This season was even more
special as the Tigers surged to their
first playoff appearance since 2006.
The last game I worked this season
was Game 4 of the ALDS against
the Yankees. Although I wasn't a
ball boy, and the Tigers didn't come
out victorious that night, I still
worked in the locker room, and I
could not stop smiling.
The first thing I make sure to do
as I open the doors to the locker
room is say to myself: "I'm so lucky
to be here, now let's make this
another great day:'
I don't do this job for the money
(minimum wage) or to watch a free
Tigers game, I do it for the memo-
ries. For example, I will never forget
when I gave a foul ball to a little
boy, his smile going across his face,
and his father pulling me aside
after and saying to me, "Thank you,
young man, you just made my son's
birthday."
I never would have imagined
just a couple of years ago how my
life would take such an amazing
change. However, my dad taught me
a very valuable lesson I will live my
life by — "You can do anything you
put your mind to."

Michael Higer, 18, of Farmington

Hills is a freshman at Michigan State

University in East Lansing.
