About Sarah D. Morris

|
Born in Pasadena, Calif., I have followed the Los Angeles Dodgers since I was seven years old. During my high school years, I became my school's baseball statistician and started dreaming of having a career involving baseball. After high school graduation, I attended Pasadena City College, the same college that produced Jackie Roosevelt Robinson, and earned my AA degree. Upon graduation, I didn't know what I wanted to do with my life, but a month after my graduation, I figured out that I wanted to write about baseball, preferably about my favorite team. I toiled making myself into the best baseball writer that I could be.

Despite moving to rural Texas, I never gave up on my dream. In December 2000, I wrote to Bill Plaschke, a sports columnist for the Los Angeles Times, saying that I didn't agree with his assessment of the Dodgers. Since he was impressed with my e-mail, he answered, and we began a correspondence. The next August he wrote an article about me that received some national attention. Three days later, Major League Baseball Advanced Media hired me to write a weekly column for the Dodgers website. After eight years, I still love my job.

Born with my umbilical cord around my shoulder, I deal with the effects of cerebral palsy. To write my articles, I use an augmentative alternative communication device and alternative access. Now I live near the Rocky Mountains. During my off hours, I try to increase awareness for use of AACs and help people with communication disabilities fulfill their potential.
