My son’s favorite player right now is Elly De La Cruze on the Cincinnati Reds.
It’s the same fascination I had for Kevin Garnett when I started playing ball.
Same “You Can’t Stop Me” attitude.
Ray, my (9) year old baller, went ‘Ray La Cruze‘ for a game-winning inside-the-park home run this weekend in honor of his favorite player.
Pride and Honor can’t touch this feeling.
This is the reason why sports are here.
To connect and share a victory, an achievement, a common goal of doing what it takes to be that best at what you do… with the potential you’ve been given by God.
I know there’s a panic frequency right now in the world to hurry to the next base point, but let’s not forgot to remember why we’re even swinging that bat.
Keep things more human moving forward and you’ll be just fine.
Love you, son.
Proud of ya for taking this moment.
You earned it.
