Tom was also the adopted Grandpa for the teams the girls played for. Tom was a well known coach for Softball, as well as YBC bowling. Tom could always be seen either on the soccer field on cold and wet Saturday morning or at the ball field where Sierra and Selena lived. Tom always had a smile on his face no matter where he was.
