A story written for the program for the Masquerade Ball in 2014, when Larry Bird was honored at the fundraiser for the Simon Youth Foundation and the Pacers Foundation.
Larry Bird is being honored tonight for his charitable contributions to the youth of central Indiana. What those contributions have been, exactly, are difficult to detail because, Bird being Bird, he maintains as private a life as is possible for one of the country’s best-known sports figures. If he wanted you to know he’d tell you, and, frankly, he doesn’t care if you know or not.
