They Knew Her As Hunter Morningstar

Gerald Homminga's avatar Gerald Homminga

The story takes place in the extreme south end of Grand Rapids during the late 1930s, near what was then Bigelow Field, the home of minor league baseball and midget car races. It was commonly referred to as Godwin Heights, a place of scattered commercial businesses and homes along and off of Division Avenue (the primary route between Grand Rapids and Kalamazoo.) Four pups would roam the fields of this area. Fisher, Dutch, Edsel, and a female owned by Jake Morningstar. Jake called her Hunter. As the months moved forward Hunter caught the eye of some wealthy baseball club owners. Hunter would make a trip to California. There her ability in the field caught the eye of a film writer and her career blossomed. The world would know her as Daisy, but the pups from Godwin Heights knew her as Hunter Morningstar. One day, when she was being promoted for an upcoming movie, three pups ventured out to see her poster. A painting, a story, a memory. Some of it is true.
