This will be my last short entry before we head into the offseason. The fall league has 3 days remaining and I am very excited about going home and seeing my family for the holidays. It’s hard to express how tired we are as players right now. It has been a 9 month grind and I can’t wait to let my body rest and recoop for a while.
Although we struggled a bit as a team during this fall it was still a great experience for all of us. We were fortunate to be a part of a great group of guys that knew how to have fun no matter what the circumstances. It was a pleasure to get to play against this calibur of player for a couple months. Although it won’t show on the stat sheet, I am very happy with the way I finished up. I didn’t get a ton of ab’s, but I feel good about things I got accomplished out here. There is always something to learn in baseball. This was a different experience, but I have been around the game long enough to know that it will benefit down the road in some way or another. Whether it be having to take an at bat cold off the bench sometime, or just to learn more about yourself so you can minimize struggles in the future. At some point next year I will look back at my time in the fall league to help me with something…it always happens.
I will be heading back home to Pennsylvania after Thursday’s game and can’t wait to get into the Lake Erie streams to fish for steelhead. The offseason brings a lot of great times for outdoor stuff like hunting and fishing, not to mention holidays with the family. I hope that everyone enjoyed reading this blog throughout the fall league. I enjoyed keeping you all up to date and appreciate your support. I wish everyone the best during this offseason, and we will see you fans again soon!
