Joe Garagiola was a player in the major leagues for 8 seasons, and never imagined he would be honored by Baseball the Hall of Fame. The St. Louis native couldn’t even boast about being the best major league player on his street, living just blocks away from Yogi Berra.

Matt Moro : WFUV Sports

When looking back on the amazing stories and gestures that come together during HOPE week, its not really fair to compare each one. But what is fair to say, is that the story of Quai and Vaida Jefferson may be one of the most inspiring stories you will ever hear.

When Quai Jefferson was just 6 years old, his mother was diagnosed was Multiple Sclerosis, a disease that affects the central nervous system. This is devastating news for any family, but is especially tough when it affects a single mother and her young son. For Quai, his mother was everything to him.
