Franciscan Villager Plays Ball!   
Ask Dan Kocinski about his four foot by four foot garden plot, and he'll tell you that right from the start he pictured a mini-Jacobs Field/Fenway Park-type stadium at Franciscan Village, 3648 Rocky River Drive. "The first thing I did was make a cardboard pattern for the infield. Then I put that down on the dirt and planted grass everywhere else." In the six weeks it took for the grass to grow, he bought wood for the outfield fences, scoreboard, and dugouts. He painted them and added signs and lettering.
"I also got dirt that had red clay in it, for an extra touch of reality," he added. Local artist Jane Sirovica created the stadium sign and these: bingo night, Sister Hope's Rides, and Sara's Second-Hand Shop. The small playing figures are Indians All Stars: Bob Feller, Lou Boudreau, and Albert Belle. Other players represent different residents and employees, making the line-up on the scoreboard.  
"Spoiler alert! We win," declared Dan.
