I wrote this article a while back, but hadn’t edited it until now. I hope you enjoy the update and a glimpse into the wonderful world of Minnesota Town Ball Baseball.

When I was younger, we loved the rain. A storm would come in and my brothers and I would run outside while my dad grabbed the wiffleball and bat. Something about the water pouring down mad...

We laid down on the floor for our last official night. The last night was spent the same as the first-on something other than a real mattress. Full circle.

I laced up my spikes for another opening day, my 4th as a pro. Over all the years of playing, there have been a number of memorable moments.
