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...

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.
