Mercy Rule

I heard a story on the radio last evening while driving home. The two radio personalities (can they really be called ‘Disc Jockeys’ anymore?) were poking fun at a high school basketball team who had recently lost a game. The score? 112-2 The two high school teams in question were the Earlsboro Wildcats (112) vs. […]

2 Big Introductions

The last few days I had the distinct pleasure of meeting two very important people. The first, as you can see, happened this afternoon.

Registration started at 8:30 a.m. and the walk began at 10:00. We got there just shy of 9 a.m. and signed-in. Fortunately, […]

A Night Out With Babe Ruth

Perhaps the most important object of baseball history in the United States is Yankee Stadium. Baseball fans, young and old, from all across the country dream of one day standing in Yankee Stadium. I know I did as a kid, and I have stood inside those old walls, among the old seats, with the old […]

Back To Work & Baseball

First day back to work since Erin was born. The work certainly had piled up in my absence. I even needed to work a little late – which normally is fine and a common reality of my profession, but tonight was not the night. Not only had I been away from Kate all day long […]
