Happy 3 day weekend everyone! I hope everyone is having a great Memorial Day weekend. Last week we had an Armed Forces night in which we wore camouflage uniforms and celebrated those who have served and our currently serving our country. This is a good time to thank all of those who have contributed to the freedoms our country gives us.
Speaking of special nights at the ballpark, next week we will be wearing new pink uniforms to honor all those affected by breast cancer. After the game we will be auctioning the jerseys off and the money goes to a good cause, so please contribute if at all possible!
Today’s game was a great one! We were trailing 3 runs with two outs in the bottom of the 8th inning when all of the sudden we exploded for 7 runs to take the lead! It was by far our best comeback win of the season to date.
After the game the Tampa Yankee Booster Club was nice enough to sponsor a hearty meal for all the players. Last year when I played Lexington, Kentucky we had host parents who did a similar type of thing. Booster club members are just one of the few behind-the-scenes workers for the team. Having them around makes life easier in minor league baseball.
Over the past couple of days I have been calling some of my ex-teammates and talking to them about how their season has been going. I have talked to a couple guys who are in the Astro system, along with one of my good friends who plays in the Dodger organization that I played with in college. I have played on so many teams throughout my amateur and professional career that it’s nice to stay in touch with some of the guys. I have made some life long friends in baseball.
Me and some of my teammates visited the Dallas Bull last week for a country music concert. It was a great venue and I really enjoyed myself. Thanks for all the great suggestions!
Until next time,
