I just landed here in sunny (hot) Arizona. "They" say it's a dry heat...still not sure who "they" are, though.
It has been a long, sometimes arduous, journey this season. Ashley and I have been lots of places, seen lots of people, and watched lots of baseball. I have a few pictures of the parks I've played in.
Hammond Stadium: Ft. Myers, FL
Jackie Robinson Ballpark: Daytona, FL
Easter Egg Hunt: Jupiter, FL
Captial Stadium: Akron, OH
NYSEG Stadium: Binghamton, NY
Gerry Uht Park: Erie, PA
Hadlock Field: Portland, ME
Fenway Park: Boston, MA
It really is a unique lifestyle. I move (at the least) every six months, leaving behind friends, family and on occasion even my wife. And all in the pursuit of a game. I get to meet new people and see places I wouldn't otherwise see. I eat crappy meals, sit on excruciatingly long bus rides and make a lousy paycheck. All in pursuit of a game. Now I'm here in Arizona, on a stage alongside some of the best ballplayers the world has to offer. Am I nervous? No chance! Like I said before, it's all in pursuit of a game.
