The all-star team I'm managing won again last night. We began with 18 teams in Texas District V, and now we're down to four. We continue tonight. We began practicing June 15. That's a lot of gatorade!


  • Gatorade Rules!!! LOL

    Congratulations to you all - what better sport could there ever be for young guys and their coaches than baseball?

    Have to do it - I know it will bring down ire here - but have to do it!

    GO PADRES!!!

  • Great going,Mike and Chris! So where do you play tonight? What's the name of the team? We want to come watch the young'uns play. It's been a long time since our baby boy was involved with all that, but we still like to watch and cheer on the little guys, especially when we know one.
    Love your blog Mike. Will miss you while you're "resting", but as usual I know Highland will reap great rewards from your time in study this summer.

  • Are any of the coaches women? Maybe something like that could spur more comments. Is it appropriate for a women to serve in the role of coach? If so, what about manager?

    You seem baseball-obsessed. Is that a good thing? :)

  • Anonymous,
    Yes, it is good to be baseball obsessed.

    Before we can answer your question about women's role in baseball, we must first answer the question; Is the "There's no crying in baseball" rule fair?

  • Anon,
    If I knew who you were I might think that comment was tounge in cheek satire. BUT we don't know who you are and it seems a little below the belt to me. (I'm a girl, and I still use that term)

    If anyone wants to change their blogs so that only registered users can comment, here is how. Go to "change settings" on the blogger dashboard, click on the "comments" tab, the second section ask "who can comment?" Use the pull downs to pick your answer. Be sure to "Save" your settings and WHA LAH! No more tacky anon comments. NOT that anyone will want to do that... just fyi! ;-o

  • Hi, this is Matt Elliott with an anonymous comment.

    Wait -- crud!

  • We are finished with baseball until Monday, whereupon we start another summer league. They play every single night for two weeks. I am ready for the family to get back to town so Connor and I can catch (pun not intended) some of the tournament.

    Maybe I am missing something, but what was so offensive about the previous "anon" comment- tongue or no tongue in cheek?

  • Anon - Ha! Nice try at pulling out a few comments here (after eightysomething comments on the ministry of women).

    We beat Dixie tonight, 13-7. Not only was it their first loss--it was the first time they haven't won by more than ten runs! So now we're 5-1 and we play them again tomorrow night. The winner of that game plays the next night against the winner of the Southern/Cedar Creek game for the Texas District V championship. Then sectionals start . . . .

    We're a LONG way from qualifying for the sectionals. But here's an interesting scenario: What if we DID make it? What about that Zoe Conference in St. Louis the following weekend? I'm speaking at all three sessions--at the very times my team would be playing.

    I'll jump off that bridge if we get there.

  • Sorry anon, I guess I read that post the wrong way. That prickly thing must be catching!
    There is no crying in baseball!

  • If this coaching prowess continues, we should float a petition to have a field at Morse Park named in your honor. At the very least, a team float during the Fall Festival. Looking forward to seeing you here in STL. EC
