I got about ten hours of sleep last night! I was super relaxed this morning as I listened to the thunder and the rain. There is something about that I enjoy. However, since rain was in the forecast all day in the Grand Rapids-Kalamazoo area, I decided to drive seven hours to Quincy, Illinois to catch a game between the Hannibal Cavemen and the Quincy Gems of the college Prospect League. I have to say that I am very pleased with the stadium which was completed in 1939 and was built with WPA funding, just like Carson Park in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.
I was excited to catch-up on my writing along with completing some information I was working on for G.G. of the Alexandra Blue Anchors. Even with a long drive ahead of me, I finally feel refreshed, hopefully tonight I sleep as well as I did last night. I have a three hour drive to St. Joseph, Missouri tonight or tomorrow, so I hope that doesn’t screw me up.
I really enjoyed the Midwest League All Star game last night. The West dominated the East. Even though, East team’s Kyle Farmer had a good game at catcher and had two walks. It is gorgeous right now in Quincy, in the upper 80’s and humid, just the way I like it! The drive over here was a little unnerving when I passed the Chicago area. A very bad storm in the area and it was hard to see. But! I made it.
I will be at another summer college league game tomorrow in MINK League. I did a blog about the summer college baseball and all the leagues a few weeks back, click here to read about them. These leagues are all over the U.S. and are a great way for college players to gain more experience. The fan experience is also a lot of fun. And, this is a wrap for now.
