Talk about Emmett's exciting moments!

At another Opening Game at Griffith Stadium President Truman signed a baseball for Emmett.

And in September 2001, Emmett was honored as a panelists for "The Legacy of Griffith Stadium" a Sports Symposium presented by Howard University Hospital where home plate still exists inside the Hopital marking the spot where Griffith Stadium once was.
