Gator Baseball Fan Inspires Team
Spring showers bring the most loyal fans to the ball park.
A little rain won't stop Robbie Lumpkins from watching the Florida Gators.
"When they lose, I lose," Lumpkins said. "When they win, I win. I'm part of the team."
And it's not exactly easy for Lumpkins to get around.
He was born with one arm and one leg.
Thirty-five years ago, doctors told Lumpkins' mother he wouldn't live long. He said his mother never lost faith and that she teaches him a no-quit attitude.
"All my life, I don't listen to people," Lumpkins said. "I just keep going and prove to them that I can do it."
Lumpkins is now in school working toward his dream of one day becoming a baseball coach. Baseball is a dream that Lumpkins never gave up on.
"Take your time and your dreams will come true," he said.
