U10/U11 Scrimmage (Or if you like Benchwarmers...Scrimimmage)

First game action, as the U11 Lions were nice enough to come scrimmage us. Some positives and negatives came out of it. I am just glad that the boys got to see live pitching from other kids and not coaches before our first game on Saturday. Was great to be out playing ball!!

How do you lay awake in the dark for over 3 hours??


Had my "experience" of a sleep study last night. Had about 14 wires attached to my head. Two things up my nose. A snore mic taped to my neck. Three straps across my chest, 2 wires connected to each leg and a temp sensor on my index finger. The guy seemed surprised after for 3 hours I laid in the dark. He came in and asked: "James are you having trouble sleeping?" I felt like I should say, No! Call Guinness, I think I may have set a record for staring at the ceiling in the dark while having 22 wires attached to me and I want to talk to them. HERE'S YOUR SIGN! Tool. I left at 1:15. I will deal with the apnia and heart attack.

First Outdoor Practice Sat 3/21

Outdoors at Academy Park!! Music to my ears! The sound of balls hitting bats and gloves really puts a smile on my face. The boys had some spring in their steps. You can see they're excited as well. Welcome Spring! We missed you!

Yes We Are Still Alive

Been busy with the boys school work and Cameron playing on two baseball teams (Saturday's are real fun with two practices for him). Griffin is chomping at the bit to get out on the field with his team. He will have 7 kids from his team last year on his team this spring. Also Tyler and Evan will be on his team so it looks like he will have a real good team. Tyler's dad Eric Jones is taking over my team since I am busy with travel ball and field and board duties (Find me at a field from now until October!). SOOOOO PSYCHED that spring is almost here!!

Oh! and if you are in the market for mulch, give me a holler. Cameron's travel team is selling mulch to help with tournament costs and travel.

Griffin's Basketball Award Ceremony

Loud music, spotlights and a full house for Griffin's basketball award ceremony this afternoon. Means a few good things and one bad. The bad, basketball is done for the boys after a fun season. The good, March is here and baseball is kicking into gear. Former 2002 National Champion Buckeye footballer Stan White Jr was the guest speaker and the kids were in awe.

Josh's Birthday OSU Hockey

Great night at the Schott for the OSU hockey game. Entire U10 team came to celebrate Josh's 10th birthday. The bucks fell in a 4-1 and 6-3 hole and made it close at the end, but lost 7-5 to Miami, Ohio. Great night and tons of laughs (especially Luke Barber's Austrailian accent). Should be a memorable spring and summer. Happy Birthday Josh!
