Hawk Talk

Tim Fangman has lived in North Liberty since he was two years old.
During that time, he followed the Chicago White Sox, led by Frank Thomas, and was a Minnesota Vikings fan, but deep down he wanted to play for the Hawkeyes.
“He was always a Hawkeye fan,” said Tim’s mom, Gwen Fangman. “It was his dream to play for the Hawkeyes. He never thought he’d be good enough but he worked hard.”
The only question was… what sport?
Tim played little league baseball in the area and developed into a real good pitcher.
He played at Koser Park in North Liberty and didn’t have a great start on the mound.
