FanPost

Thanks, Rockheads!

Thanks to all of you who commented on my previous diary about my late father. I can't begin to tell you how inspiring it's been to read your stories of your own dads. I feel much less alone in this now. It's amazing how connected a sport can make us, and I do think that baseball is special in this regard. Something about backyards and plastic bats, old gloves, and tales of catches or slides that may or may not have really happened. Baseball is as much about folklore as it is about stats I sometimes think.

Again, thanks for the warm response. Let's make some more memories for future generations!

GO ROX!!
