COARSEGOLD – He may be less than five years old, but Logan Sesto is already a well-known person in the foothills, and now, the Coarsegold Elementary School student is poised to go nation-wide, as he’s on the short-list to win the 2014 Little League Photo Contest.
Local boy Logan needs our votes. Click through to the Logan Little League link.
The final-10 photo features Logan with Coach Jonas Garner. The voting is being conducted over several days and ends this Friday, Dec. 12. Little League Facebook friends are asked to choose the top three photos from 10 finalists.
Logan is described by his mom Lisa as “a big ‘ol Teddy Bear.” He deals with the residual health issues of Transverse Myelitis (TM), an autoimmune disease he acquired as a baby before he came to live with Lisa. TM is a “cousin disorder” to Multiple Sclerosis; Logan is paraplegic and uses a walker at school and a wheelchair for distance, Lisa explains. Logan attends Special Day Class at Coarsegold Elementary School and his big brother is Gabriel Sesto.
Now, Logan’s family is looking for community support so Logan can win the Little League photo contest, which Lisa believes may help call attention to kids with special needs. The top 3 pictures with the most “likes” on Facebook will be displayed at the World of Little League Museum in the World Series Gallery Presented by Easton Foundations. The Richard “Hank” Bauer, Jr. Little League Photography Exhibit displays the top three photographs from the last 13 years of the Little League Photo Contest.
“I had submitted photos of both the boys and Logan’s was chosen,” says mom Lisa, asking that people follow the link and “like” Logan’s picture, which is easy to do. “All you have to do if you have a Facebook account is click on his photo. This will surely bring awareness to the needs of special kids.”
Founded in 1939, Little League is the largest youth sports organization in the world, with 2.4 million children playing in more than 80 countries.
