With the sun setting earlier and earlier, trips to CY Sports will probably increase in frequency.
At least over the next 40 days.
I checked in with Ryan and Chandler and Zach and Doug and Seth and Luke and watched one of the pitching instructors assign homework to his students, “When you get home, I want you to turn on that TV and cheer for the football team from KC.” A whole host of future Kickapoo players were practicing and Ryan was using the pitching machine to give pointers to a young catcher and Zach was stretching out his arm after national signing day last week. Fingers crossed, Chandler will get an offer to play college ball in the next couple weeks.
Wyatt, the 13-year old, six-foot tall, Yankees fan warmed me up before his pitching lessons, which finished 15 minutes before kickoff.
Chandler, the Saints fan, stepped in the cage with me and we threw sliders and splitters and talked about a New Orleans and Kansas City match up for the last game of the season which is the same day I’ll be telling catch-playing stories to some of the prisoners Aaron (Day #203) works with.
Opening Day can’t come soon enough.
