HOUSTON Gruener will be honored at her local baseball field on Monday at 3:15pm, at the Lady Mustang softball field of Friendswood High School, 702 Greenbriar Ave., Friendswood, Texas 77546.

She is the Houston-area winner of Diamonds in the Rough, a program that recognizes kids who have used lessons learned from playing baseball or softball to overcome challenges on or off the field.

The contest is sponsored by Milwaukee-based Briggs & Stratton Corp., which has donated more than 500,000 to youth baseball through the Diamonds on the Rough program.
