Biography

I have to write a biography for the website and it has gotten me really nervous, I have to open up and tell people about the real me and what makes me tick, plus all the things that I have done in my life to this point.  As I have sat and thought about all of these things it continues to dawn on me how I am worried about what others people think of me.  I don’t know why it is that important, but it is, I don’t think it is as bad as when I was younger but I believe that it does have an impact on how I live my life.  I want to be as authentic as I can possible be with who I am, I don’t want to sensationalize anything.  I don’t think my life is any different than most, I have plenty of hopes and dreams, I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I think I am getting closer.  I don’t have any deep dark secrets that I am hiding but I have my quirks, like we all do.  I am just trying to get comfortable talking about myself, I never really did like being the center of attention but I never really tried to shy away from it either.  My promise to you if you chose to follow me is to be as honest and forthright as I possible can be about myself and what I am experiencing.  This whole project can blow up in my face or it can be the best experience of my life, I have no expectations to what I want to have happen or experience but to just go out and live day by day and enjoy baseball and the fan experience!

Lesson Learned

Image

Well, I have to say that I am learning a lot!  I have made the mistake of using some photos that are copyrighted, I thought they were not and assumed I could use them.  Thankfully, I have someone looking out for me and told me the error.  I have to change some things up and I will not be selling the T-Shirt I came out with last night, I still will have the T-Shirt that accompanies this post up on the site.  I will also will be revamping the site to make sure that I am not infringing on any copyrights.  This is a minor setback but I would rather deal with it now before I hit the road and I sold a bunch of shirts, to the people that purchased the T-Shirt, I will refund the money and you can decide if you want the current one.  So sorry and a little embarrassed.  I sincerely apologize to the company I used the photos from.

Baseball Buddha T-Shirts

I finally got the ecommerce portion of my website working!  I am selling a long sleeve t-shirt currently.  I will be making a couple other t-shirts and a baseball hat.  The price for the shirt is between $27.95 – $29.95 plus $6.95 for shipping and handling.  If you would like to order one to support me that would be great!  It will take a few weeks to get since I will only be able to order these when I have at least 10 shirts to order to make it profitable enough to do this.

Why…

JdNnlfWK

Why are you doing this is something I have been asked a lot lately, my answer has been that “life is short”.  But there is more to it than that, I have a lot of fear in me and it has prevented me from doing a lot of things, I really believe that the best way to experience life is to step out of your comfort zone and your consistent, secure environment.  Your perspective changes, you get a better understanding of what people deal with and how others view the world and why.

You might think that is a deep concept for a person that is going to attempt to go watch a baseball game a day for 9 months, however I think  there is a lot of relevance to why I am doing this.  One friend said to me today, “You have courage my friend,” those kinds of statements I need to hear from time to time because it motivates me to continue, I have thought many times, “what in the hell are you doing!”  that tape has played countless times in my head.  Life is truly about the journey and if I am not willing to experience it, in all its many forms, I believe I will become stagnant and cynical about others, I think it was Casey Kasem that said, “Keep your feet on the ground but keep reaching for the stars!”  I think this is one of my attempts at reaching for the stars.

The one fear that I am getting over is failing, I have failed many times, I have done many dumb and boneheaded things and I have swore I wouldn’t do those things again, well I guess life would be pretty boring and uninteresting if you always played it safe.

Another reason why I am doing this is because I want to do something not many people would attempt to do, lots of people will daydream about it but very few will act on such goofy and fun thoughts, I just so happen to be in a position to be able to act and have just enough resources to make it for a few months, I am still raising money to do this, so buy one of my T-Shirts from me when I get my e-commerce portion of the website up.

I will talk more about the why in other posts!  Please follow me on my social media sites and check in regularly to my website, which is a work in progress!
