Road Trip: The Summer of No Baseball

July 16, 2011

I just returned from a summer road trip. My wife and I journeyed through ten states. The only live baseball action I saw during this entire time was viewed from 630 feet above the action. Astonishing. I still don't know how this happened. The purpose of our trip was to visit my family in Kansas. We brought our eight-year-old son with us, and left him with his grandparents for an extended visit. I had...

May 27, 2011

Nearly a year to the day before he died, Brian, Eric, and I discussed the idea that I should interview Randy Poffo about his brief minor league career.

Bus Leagues Road Trip: Wilmington @ Potomac 5/15/2011

May 16, 2011

On Sunday, I woke up with a hankerin' to take my son to a minor-league baseball game. Living in central Virginia, we have several options at just about any level of affiliation, but not one of the teams is located less than an hour's drive from my house, so I try to spread the love around. My first thought was to go to Salem, VA, where the Winston-Salem Dash (White Sox) were visiting the Salem...

Slipping away to see my mistress

March 26, 2011

OK, confession time. Don't tell my spouse, but I sneaked away for an hour today to see my mistress*.
