Remembering Richard Durrett

When Richard Durrett died, the Dallas-Fort Worth sports community froze. One of the good guys left us way too early at the age of 38. While he covered a variety of sports, baseball was his passion. Perhaps his finest work was a column he wrote in 2011 called "What Baseball Means to Sons and Fathers." Durrett revealed personal feelings in the aftermath of firefighter Shannon Stone’s death, after he fell while reaching for a ball thrown by Josh Hamilton. Durrett’s closest sports colleagues honor him by reading from that column.
