Let's hope PJ hits a home run in his American dream

Editor's Viewpoint

P J Conlon may one day be very grateful that his parents decided to leave their Falls Road home for a new life in the United States.

Now, 21 years later, he has a chance of making his American dream come true.

Most people on this side of the Atlantic may never have heard of him, but he could be a huge sporting star, having been picked for a summer training camp by the New York Mets baseball team.

His career to date has been very successful, but the step up to the top ranks is difficult.

He has met every challenge laid before him and the left-handed pitcher certainly doesn't intend to throw away his chance at stardom.
