  • The time my son played catch with a professional ballplayer

     My son loves baseball.

    This was apparent this past Saturday night, July 28, when I took Huck to watch the Myrtle Beach (S.C.) Pelicans square off against the Lynchburg Hillcats in a minor league baseball game.

    Fortunately, a friend and one of my Dad’s former football players at West Brunswick High School, had a few tickets in the “beach” portion of the Pelicans’ stadium, so this allowed Huck to roam around the area. It would’ve been nearly impossible to watch a baseball game from the bleachers with my 2-year-old son.
