Johnathan's mom: "Deputy Giroir's time 'meant so much to my son. He thinks it's so cool.'

St. Mary Parish Sheriff’s Office

ST. MARY PARISH, La. (BRPROUD) – Something special happened on Wednesday, June 2 and it involved baseball, a young boy and a sheriff’s deputy.

Blake Giroir is a deputy with the St. Mary Parish’s Office and loves baseball.

On Wednesday, Giroir was on his way home “when he saw something interesting, a kid practicing baseball in his yard alone,” according to the St. Mary Parish’s Office.

That boy was 10-year-old Johnathan and Deputy Giroir decided to stop and see if the young man wanted to play catch.

Johnathan’s mom, Courtney is describes what happened next:

Jonathan usually plays in the outfield but recently was asked to try pitching.

So there they were, a deputy and a little leaguer playing catch and getting better.

The St. Mary Parish’s Office would like to thank “Johnathan and Deputy Giroir for showing us all what community looks like!”
