  1. Sending my heart felt condolences to Faron’s family & teammates. Faron was a great fastball player. He was one of my first native friends. He was always a good sport whether he won or lost. My pleasure being on the same all-star teams with Faron more than once. He was one tough guy to get out & could lay down a bunt like no other & a pure hitter. He was an inspiration to a lot of his people. God bless you Faron & R.I.P. #9 will never forget you…
