CHANGE IN THE WEATHER

As my sickness finally began to leave my system after a month (from strep to stomach to cough….you name it). The Royals began to play better…experiencing their first winning road trip of 2010.

Our “retro-stadium tour” began with two quick games in Baltimore. Rain…cold. Stop me if you’ve heard this before. We’d had plenty of it, at home and on the road. Oriole Park at Camden Yards…where I once worked…was its usual beautiful self…just not the weather. Royals split two games.

But when we woke up in downtown Cleveland for another two-game series…skies were bright. Here you see the historic Terminal Tower  From the time it opened in 1930 until 1964, it was the tallest building in North America outside New York City. It’s connected to a train station…part of what’s known as Tower City Center. It’s attached to two hotels, a mall, as well as being the hub of Cleveland’s three rapid transit lines.

So for both games in Cleveland it was beautiful. Even more beautiful, the Royals won both games to gain a series sweep, a winning road trip (3-1) and move from last place to third place in one day!

My son John and his proud papa as he graduates from elementary school. My baby is going to middle school! Attention all the people who told me “they grow up fast.” You’re right!

 

 

 

Softball line-up.jpg

 

Before a Saturday afternoon game with Colorado the ’85 Royals and ’85 Cardinals played a softball game…2010 being the 25th anniversary. Here Dennis Leonard and Danny Jackson greet their teammates upon their introductions.

Jackson was the pitcher, Jim Sundberg the catcher. And, for the first time maybe ever, former pitcher John Tudor bats leadoff. John Wathan went deep in this game.

Willie Aikens with Ned Yost.jpg

 

Former Royal Willie Aikens did not play in the game. By 1985 he was a Blue Jay, not a Royal. But he was there to cheer on his old teammates. Royals won the game (appropriately enough). Final was 4-1.

Here’s our Micah Lefebvre growth chart. Two months ago we showed you a one-month old Micah. Now Ryan and Sarah’s boy is three months. Like I said…they grow up fast!Royals Celebrity Golf Tourney.jpg

 

We had a great time at the Royals Celebrity golf outing at The National in Parkville.  It benefits Royals Charities.  I played with three great guys (notice I didn’t say great golfers…haha…ok they were better than me)…Craig Carter, Frank Scimeca and A.J. Mertens.
