Rodriguez brothers chosen Grand Marshals

Express editor
For some volunteers, the task at hand seems like hard work. For others, it’s a joy. This year’s Youth Day Grand Marshals are clearly amongst the latter.
Brothers Chris, John and Marc Rodriguez devote hours of their lives to Winters Little League, serving in every capacity from coach to board member, and have done so all their lives. They had excellent role models — their parents Linda and the late Rudy Rodriguez devoted their time to Little League as well as the boys grew up, and all three have nothing but fond memories of those times, as well as a deep appreciation for all the adults who volunteered to make Little League a great experience for them.
Their father is credited with bringing the city’s youth recreation baseball program to the Little League level, allowing the kids to play children from other towns and advance into post-league play. In those days, there was no “snack shack.” Rudy sold concessions from the back of his truck.
Rudy and Linda were Youth Day Co-Grand Marshals themselves in 1990, and then chosen as Citizens of the Year in 1991 for their devotion to Little League, beginning in 1971 just after they were married. . . . .
