Being involved in this game for 28 years, I’ve heard a lot, seen a lot and most importantly, played a lot. This game creates memories that people carry for a lifetime. Me, I carry a suitcase full.
One of my greatest memories was going to a Reds vs Astros game in 1995 with my parents. I’m going to say it was the 5th inning, former Red Ron Gant hit a grand slam, in which I became completely overwhelmed with joy, looking over at my dad, as he was overwhelmed with joy saying to me ” that is the best hit in baseball. That doesn’t happen very often”. We talked about this homerun for days, months and years, with mom claiming that I cried at that moment (I still say that I didn’t). Fast forward to 2001, playing in New Lebanon as a senior in high school (Madison Mohawks), with the bases loaded, I hit a home run to left field. As I am rounded second base, I realized that I had just hit “The greatest hit in baseball”. Now rounding third, with the coach reminding me “see what happens when you don’t pull your head, Davey”, I looked into the visitor bleachers and spotted my mom and dad with that overwhelmed since of joy, just like in 1995.
Although I do have a suitcase full of memories, this memory is the greatest of all time for me.
In the summer some of the best conversations come from inside a dugout on a ballfield. These conversations can range from a wide range of topics such as, what the opposing pitcher is throwing, what bat a teammate is using, and all the way to what is for dinner after the game. In these times, we need good conversation and engagement to pass our time indoors.
Over the coming days, VVBASE will be posting to a blog titled ” From The Dugout”. These blog post will have anything from Baseball and Softball training videos, VVBASE news, equipment information and much more.
The goal is to get the community involved and keep your ballplayer engaged and excited for the 2020 season.
I certainly look forward to your involvement in our post and can’t wait to see you at the ballpark.
