DECATUR -- After WAND posted its story on Eisenhower baseball coach Kevin Hale and his unique approach to his team's 1-25 season despite his failing kidneys, the community rallied to support him. The video was shared hundreds of times and was viewed for more than 8,000 combined minutes on Facebook alone.
