 Stevland Hardaway Morris, born May 13, 1950, known by his
 stage name Stevie Wonder, is an American singer-songwriter,
 multi-instrumentalist, record producer and activist.  Blind
 since shortly after birth, he has recorded more than thirty
 U.S. top ten hits and received twenty-two Grammy Awards,
 the most ever awarded to a male solo artist.

 When Stevie Wonder was four, his mother left his father and
 moved herself and her children to Detroit.  She changed her
 name back to Lula Hardaway and later changed her son's
 surname to Morris, partly because of relatives.  Morris has
 remained Stevie Wonder's legal name ever since.  He began
 playing instruments at an early age, including piano,
 harmonica, drums and bass. During childhood he was active
 in his church choir.

Subj:     Strongest Dad In The World (S500c)
          From: Sports Illustrated, By Rick Reilly
          From: edapsmason 8/21/2006
Hoyt's picture from
CBS4Boston.com

 Eighty-five times he's pushed his disabled son, Rick, 26.2
 miles in marathons. Eight times he's not only pushed him
 26.2 miles in a wheelchair but also towed him 2.4 miles in
 a dinghy while swimming and pedaled him 112 miles in a seat
 on the handlebars-all in the same day.

 Dick's also pulled him cross-country skiing, taken him on
 his back mountain climbing and once hauled him across the
 U.S. on a bike. Makes taking your son bowling look a little
 lame, right?

 And what has Rick done for his father?  Not much-except save
 his life.

 This love story began in Winchester, Mass., 43 years ago,
 when Rick was strangled by the umbilical cord during birth,
 leaving him brain-damaged and unable to control his limbs.

 "He'll be a vegetable the rest of his life;" Dick says
 doctors told him and his wife, Judy, when Rick was nine
 months old. "Put him in an  institution."

 But the Hoyts weren't buying it.  They noticed the way Rick's
 eyes followed them around the room.  When Rick was 11 they
 took him to the engineering department at Tufts University
 and asked if there was anything to help the boy communicate.
 "No way,"  Dick says he was told. "There's nothing going on
 in his brain."

 "Tell him a joke," Dick countered.  They did.  Rick laughed.
 Turns out a lot was going on in his brain.

 Rigged up with a computer that allowed him to control the
 cursor by touching a switch with the side of his head, Rick
 was finally able to communicate.  First words? "Go Bruins!"
 And after a high school classmate was paralyzed in an accident
 and the school organized a charity run for him, Rick pecked
 out, "Dad, I want to do that."

 Yeah, right.  How was Dick, a self-described "porker" who
 never ran more than a mile at a time, going to push his son
 five miles?  Still, he tried.  "Then it was me who was handi-
 capped," Dick says. "I was sore for two weeks."

 That day changed Rick's life. "Dad," he typed, "when we were
 running, it felt like I wasn't disabled anymore!"

 And that sentence changed Dick's life. He became obsessed
 with giving Rick that feeling as often as he could.  He got
 into such hard-belly shape that he and Rick were ready to
 try the 1979 Boston Marathon.

 "No way," Dick was told by a race official.  The Hoyts were
 not quite a single runner, and they weren't quite a wheel-
 chair competitor.  For a few years Dick and Rick just
 joined the massive field and ran anyway, then they found
 a way to get into the race officially:  In 1983 they ran
 another marathon so fast they made the qualifying time for
 Boston the following year.  Then somebody said, "Hey, Dick,
 why not a triathlon?"

 How's a guy who never learned to swim and hadn't ridden a
 bike since he was six going to haul his 110-pound kid
 through a triathlon?  Still, Dick tried.

 Now they've done 212 triathlons, including four grueling
 15-hour Ironmans in Hawaii. It must be a buzzkill to be a
 25-year-old stud getting passed by an old guy towing a
 grown man in a dinghy, don't you think?

 Hey, Dick, why not see how you'd do on your own?  "No way,"
 he says.  Dick does it purely for "the awesome feeling" he
 gets seeing Rick with a cantaloupe smile as they run, swim
 and ride together.

 This year, at ages 65 and 43, Dick and Rick finished their
 24th Boston Marathon, in 5,083rd place out of more than
 20,000 starters.  Their best time'?  Two hours, 40 minutes
 in 1992--only 35 minutes off the world record, which, in
 case you don't keep track of these things, happens to be
 held by a guy who was not pushing another man in a wheel-
 chair at the time.

 "No question about it," Rick types. "My dad is the Father
 of the Century."

 And Dick got something else out of all this too. Two years
 ago he had a mild heart attack during a race.  Doctors
 found that one of his arteries was 95% clogged. "If you
 hadn't been in such great shape," one doctor told him,
 "you probably would've died 15 years ago."  So, in a way,
 Dick and Rick saved each other's life.

 Rick, who has his own apartment (he gets home care) and
 works in Boston, and Dick, retired from the military and
 living in Holland, Mass., always find ways to be together.
 They give speeches around the country and compete in some
 backbreaking race every weekend, including this Father's
 Day.

 That night, Rick will buy his dad dinner, but the thing
 he really wants to give him is a gift he can never buy.

 "The thing I'd most like," Rick types, "is that my dad
 sit in the chair and I push him once."

 Here's the video....

 Adam Bender, 8, is one of several kids who plays catcher in
 Southeastern's rookie league at Veterans Park.  What makes
 Adam stand out is that he plays one of the toughest positions

 his left leg amputated when he was one.  Adam doesn't use a
 prosthesis, and only uses crutches when he reaches base for
 the Astros.  You can view a video of Adam playing baseball
