LaRue Krull, 92, resides at Shell Rock Health Care Center.

     She grew up in Illinois, attended country school, and enjoyed playing on the baseball team.

     “I think I was the only girl. I loved batting. When I was home, us kids would have a ball, and when it was my turn, I’d get up, and I’d swing,” Krull said. “They never found the ball.”
