Playing in the Rain

Posted by AJPettersen , 09 August 2014 · 615 views

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...

Moving On

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 always told myself I would be done playing if I experienced a long period of time without enjoyment. Passion and heart are what got me to such a point in my career and without them, it would become...

The Greatest Gift

Posted by AJPettersen , 29 April 2014 · 86 views

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. They can be best described by the feelings that accompanied them. The feeling of over 10000 fans shaking the ground beneath me at an NCAA regional final, the feeling of winning a Big Ten Championship, the feeling of...

The Old Man and the Wall

Posted by AJPettersen , 25 March 2014 · 439 views
