TLBAA Member’s Son Featured in Texas Monthly Article
Ross Ohlendorf, son of Curtis and Patti Ohlendorf, Austin, TX, recently pitched a few innings during spring training that caught the attention of Texas Monthly writer Paul Burka.
Burka wrote, in the May issue, about Ohlendorf’s debut on the mound for the Yankees against their arch rival, the Boston Red Sox. But Ohlendorf’s pitching wasn’t the subject of the article, rather Burka focused on the development of this special hurler for the Yankees and Texas native.

TLBT Member Makes Career Day Special
TLBT member Parker Grudt, Peaster, TX, recently brought something unusual to his career day at his elementary school – his Longhorns. Grudt displayed four Longhorns: a cow (Belinda’s Dream along with her calf Commando), a bull (Sanddollar Newton) and a steer (Doolittle).

As the classes walked around to the different career stations Parker discussed and displayed the uses of his cattle tools, such as a show stick and branding iron. All of his classmates were allowed to pet the calf and enjoyed the experience. Parker’s father Darren Grudt and Duane and Theresa Tabor were also in attendance at the career day.
