There is one stoplight in Homer, Mich. The population is fewer than 1,800. The middle-school principal calls it "Small Town, USA." And after the farmers put their hogs to bed on Tuesday, the entire community will gather around their television sets.
Josh Collmenter, the Homer town hero, will make the biggest start of the season, the biggest start of his young life.
"Everybody here is crazy about Josh," said Scott Salow, baseball coach at Homer High. "I talked to him (Sunday night), and we're planning a homecoming soon, hopefully after the Diamondbacks win the World Series."
