On Saturday (May 2), my wife Carrie and I went to a season-ending awards ceremony at East Valley High School to pay tribute to the players, coaches and parents of varsity and junior varsity baseball players.
My 16-year-old son, Drew, was one of just three players from each squad to, much to our pleasant surprise, be given a special award.
There's a saying that goes something like, "The sun doesn't shine on the same dog's behind every day". Basically, one can't expect to have everything go in their favor all the time. My 16 year-old son, Drew, is putting that adage to the test.
While it seemingly took forever for former Seattle Mariners great Edgar Martinez to finally be elected into the National Baseball Hall of Fame, it was even longer than that when Gar paid a visit to Yakima the summer following his retirement from baseball.
