Cole Shinsky lost his mom nine years ago, but one thing she said has always stuck with him.
“She mentioned she’d be a yellow butterfly one day,” Shinsky wrote on Twitter.
Shinsky, a left-handed college pitcher, has faced a number of struggles recently, from shoulder problems to potentially switching schools. He longed for someone to let him know that everything was going to be OK — someone like his mom.
Then, around Mother’s Day, an unexpected visitor arrived just when he needed her most.
