With much appreciation...


My son, who is now 26 years-old, was recently honored by our local paper for his achievements during his high school baseball career.
And he really appreciated it.
Family and friends have been calling both us and him. Past teammates and coaches have reconnected to say they saw the article in the paper and to offer congratulations. Lots of conversations and heart felt messages. There have been texts and emails too.

I think if this had happened a few years ago my son wouldn't have understood or appreciated it as much...
Because enough years have gone by and he is older and wiser I think he knows what an honor it was to be recognized for his talent and dedication to baseball and his team.

Too bad the newspaper that covered his baseball career all through high school and college and wrote countless articles about him over the years AND named him Baseball Catcher of the Decade didn't spell our last name right...
