Would Ya'll Be Upset if I Turned This Into a Baseball Blog?

Oliver, catcher and second baseman

Henry, catcher

Would it freak you out if I started blogging my boys' baseball stats? What about if I hosted a giveaway here on a moon, worn as if it had been a shell, and the winner was the person who guessed which brother had the most base hits? I could have The Brothers sign a baseball and send it to the winner. What if I told you that at some point in the first of three games this morning, I actually uttered the sentence, He's fast and he's good-looking! I rarely use an exclamation point, but I uttered that sentence with at least one, and I uttered it to a large man, the grandfather of one of the other players whose own sons both played in the minor leagues. I uttered that exclamation in response to The Big Experienced Baseball Man's own exclamation that Henry hustled. Would it freak you out if I told you that I regularly shouted the words hustle!! let's go!!! and come on, guys!! Look alive!!! 

Clearly, eight hours, 21 innings and three games later, I've lost my mind.


  1. Nope. I totally get it. I love watching Jonah play baseball, love how much he loves playing baseball, love it that he's good at it, love the kildeer that strafe the fields, love the way the boys cheer each other on, love sitting in the sun on those hot bleachers screaming for my boy.

  2. Nope. Not lost your mind. Just a mom who is super proud of her boys. And well you should be.

    Whatever you turn this blog into, I'll always be here.

  3. Can you at least put up the poem "Casey at the Bat?"

  4. You can post stats, but I am almost certain I won't understand them.

  5. No, I wouldn't mind, in fact, I would encourage you to do so! :-) Many thanks.

    From a baseball fan.

    Greetings from London.

  6. I like Denise Emanuel Clemen's suggestion! How about starting every baseball post with, "It looked extremely rocky for the Mudville Nine that day. . . " Except insert your kid's teams. Hee hee.

    Loved Casey at the Bat. Would love hearing about the boys grand slams, too. :)

  7. You can write about anything, Elizabeth, and I will happily read it.

  8. Life is pretty awesome isn't it? Those full days - that's the good stuff.

  9. I would only be worried if you didn't have kids on the field. Glad you're all enjoying yourselves!
