I am a Certified Personal Trainer and right now, I’m spending most of my time at home, as a good percentage of the population is doing, unable to train as the gyms are closed and facilities are under quarantine. Been trying to stay positive and with that said, I’ve been watching old baseball games and interviews. Enjoying the ever-living daylights out of it, but…
With all this time on my hands my mind has wandered, my emotions have been all over the place and I noticed some events pushing me in an old direction.
- On April 1st, Ed Farmer the radio voice of the White Sox passed away. The urge to write about his death was overwhelming.
- David, a dear friend of mine and I are going to play in a Wood Bat 60 And Over Baseball league this year. He called to tell me he’s making his own bats. Man, I’d love to publicize this.
- A young man I coached years ago in baseball and a good friend of my son’s posted on Facebook his four favorite baseball players and challenged me to do the same, as well as challenge four friends to do the same. It took a while to come up with just four (I cheated and added a fifth).
- All four friends responded with there four and we got into discussions on the lists.
- Saw on Facebook that Glenn Beckert passed away. The thought immediately came into my mind that many of the players which were part of my childhood were getting older and dying. Again, the urge to write about this.
So, here is the first post. Not much to it, I know. But it lays the foundation, gives me a starting point and it’s a re-introduction. My goal is to continue to post as often as “the spirit moves me”. I will also try and find the old articles from my WISN days and the last incarnation of this blog and throw them in the Archives for your enjoyment.
Until next time…
