Re: Baseball is more than just a game and is about more than just winning.
Wow man, a kick to read this awful news, I am sorry to hear the news of your loss. I have gotten to know you a little bit on here and consider you one of my favorite posters-we seem alike in baseball ways at least. I had also spoke with your dad on here a handful of times and wasnt aware of the connection-although in my head I wondered everytime but figured it was coincidence.
I wasnt super close with my dad in many ways; thoughts/ideas/interests, etc, but we always had an equal love for baseball. My wife and I were talking the other day about my dad and the conversations we have when we see him.She was saying she could script them; start with baseball in general and any news/events going on, then move to our teams (he is a Tigers fan), then move on to my own playing days and the teams he coached for me. My wife was joking about it, but I said I dread the day we cant have those same near-scripted conversations.
I know there are many painful days ahead for you as you deal with this. I hope the joy and memories of the years and times together can soon help ease that pain for you. Sorry for you and your families loss. I am betting he is oiling up his glove and waiting to have a catch with you again some day.
