Take Me Out to the Ballgame

Provincial Champs! Photos by nephew Terry Kelly
What says "summer afternoon" more than a ballgame? Now I admit, I'm not a huge sports fan, unless, that is... unless I know someone who's playing. And if it's a family member, well.... I'm there! Whoopin' and hollerin'! A few weeks ago on a lovely Sunday afternoon, I had the pleasure of watching my great- nephew Nathan pitch a game with his team, the Fredericton Peewee AAA Royals. They've had a great season and this past weekend they won Provincials! Nathan pitched an awesome game! How wonderful to see their team photo in the paper this week, after winning that title. Next weekend they will travel to Charlottetown PEI for the Atlantic championship. I wish them all luck, but most of all Good Luck Nathan! Give it to 'em, Nate! Show 'em what you can do with that ball!
Baseball isn't even finished yet and Nathan is back to hockey. He's spent this last week of his summer vacation at a skills and drills hockey camp - way to go Nate! It won't be long before we'll be back at the hockey rink, cheering you on!


"Every day is a new opportunity. You can build on yesterday's success, or put its failures behind and start over again. That's the way life is, with a new game every day, and that's the way baseball is."

Nathan is a very athletic guy! It is far more fun watching games when you know the athlete. Hope that his team is able to bring home the win!

It sure does make a difference when you know someone playing. We coached our two girls in softball for a number of years and when they got too old, we stopped going to the games. None of the grands play baseball but I have been to dance recitals and volleyball games.
