I made it to Day 100! Wow, out on the road for 100 days! I still have a lot of days to go, but I am excited by the fact I made it this far! I will be going to game 108 tonight in Cincinnati, next over to Fort Wayne, IN; then, moving onto Chicago for a White Sox game. I will be in my home state to throw out the first pitch at a Madison Mallards game on Wednesday! It has been a great trip so far. I have added to my schedule so please check it out, click here. I will be in Ashland, Wisconsin to watch the first game of the WIAA playoffs as the Oredockers run the table for their first State Baseball Championship. It will happen! I hope to see everyone at the ball field for that game, very excited to see my nephew play and the rest of the boys that I have watched the last few years.
I was in Hickory, North Carolina last night and drove seven hours north today to see the Cincinnati Reds take on the St. Louis Cardinals. I don’t feel like writing too much today as I have been working on little things with the website the last couple of hours. I want to get over to see the Reds Hall of Fame before I go to the game tonight. If you haven’t read my post from yesterday, please take the time to do it today. Chris, the KC Super Fan, is an awesome guy and I want to give him the respect that he deserves. It took me over a week to write it up, so I will wait a couple of days before I replace it on the site!
I have been thinking a lot lately about how I can capitalize on this experience. I have seen a lot and would love to do something within baseball when I am done with this trip. However, I just want to point out, that was never my intent. I have lots of time to think when I am driving so my mind does go there, please don’t think that is my only reason I have done this.
I wanted to see this great country of ours, wanting to meet all kinds of wonderful personalities that are passionate about baseball. I wanted to write and express what I have been a part of. My plan is unfolding and I’m doing exactly that. I am very appreciative of all who have supported me. I am utterly blown away by your generosity. I can’t wait to support all of you as you go out on your life adventures; be it something small or something huge, it excites me that you want to do want makes you happy!
Have a great day! I hope everyone takes a moment tomorrow to contemplate all the people that have given their lives to protect all the freedoms we have. Without them, I wouldn’t be able to chase this game all over the country!
