Although this season wasn’t as long as the two years prior, it’s good to be home with my wife and family. The Missions did not make the play-offs this year, but I had another solid season and got to play with a great group of guys. Right now I’m looking forward to getting back on schedule with my off-season students and seeing the progress they’ve made since last winter.
As the end of the season draws near for the minor leaguers, it’s gotten pretty exciting for a few of my buddies. Missions starting pitchers Andrew Werner and Casey Kelly have been pulled up to AAA where they spent a rather short time just before getting the call up to the big leagues. I’m real excited for both of them and hope they continue to do well. Andrew had a terrific first and second outing, as did Kelly.
