JR Towles...another great example of a fine person who's hometown is Crosby, TX.
While being the Houston Astros catcher may have made him a household name that is only a tip of the iceberg of what a wonderful young man he truly is! JR's committment to God is obvious in everything he does. He is not shy when it comes to talking about his faith! Before every game he has a talk with God and ask him for his protection and his help in allowing JR to do the best that he can.
I will not talk about his great successes in baseball...after all that is all over the internet and the news. I am overly impressed in JR'z dedication to God and his community and love what he is doing to inspire our youth.
Recently on April 10, 2008 there was a street dedication in Crosby, TX honoring JR. Jerry Eversole, Precinct 4 County Commissioner, was on hadn to help celebrate the honor. JR did not let fans down as he signed balls, shirts and whatever else they brought with them.
Great success comes to great people and JR is no exception!
