Little League Season Ends

I haven't been blogging too much the past few months.  I have been very busy with baseball with my sons and umpiring from the high school level on down.  First of all it has been a rewarding season for a few reasons and I would like to highlight some of them.

First of all, both of my sons aged 8 and 11 won their respective league championships.  I know what your saying....winning is everything.  I my case for my boys to see was that hard work and perseverance paid off.  Both never missed a practice and worked at things other than at practice.  For my 11-year old, he has been practicing since January.

For both of my sons, the highlight came on my 8-year old's first playoff game.  With the game tied and heading to extra-innings, my son hit an inside-the-park homerun to give his team a one run lead. The game was far from over, as he had to come in and pitch.  He set the side down in order in the bottom of the 7th for the one-run win.

Again, the win wasn't important.

It was watching his older brother looking on in amazement as his younger brother performed under pressure.  After the game, there was a feeling of that's my brother and I am proud of it.  The older one even carried his younger brother's bat bag after the game to make sure he got everything packed.

The championships were great and may be the only ones, but what happened in between was just as special.


As I continue to post more leading up to the high school football season, there have been many going's on with elections coming up and grass roots corruption in Northumberland County.  The Yanks are saying goodbye to two legends.  Commissioner Kurt Masser addressed his past and there is a changing of the guard in France. 

Hello Brazil in 2014, leave the horns in South Africa......congrats to Espania!!!
