This kind of friendship formed quickly between the Stone's and Oswalt's when Ricky was first called up by the Houston Astros in 2001. Ironically, Roy was put on the disabled list and Ricky was called up to take his roster spot. Ricky's first call up to the Major Leagues. Ever. That excitement alone is life changing! But something else happened that year that was life changing. Ricky and Roy formed a great friendship and in turn Tracey and Nicole formed a tight bond as well.
Fast forward to 2008 and Ricky's cancer diagnosis. Roy rushed to his side the night Ricky suffered his seizure. He was there with him at 3 a.m. At the time Ricky's tumour and cancer diagnosis was not known.
When we asked the baseball community for their support with the Rally for Recovery auction the Oswalt's were the first to respond. How can we help? What can we do? It was evident to us that they were willing to help in anyway they could. Our sincerest thanks to the Oswalt family for their contributions to this auction.
Now onto the great auction items we have from Roy. You name it, we've got it. So if you want some amazing memorabilia from the 4 time All Star, you have come to the right place! Check it out:
