Playing on Blue Grass

26868758785_61a5647848_zWalsh Park-La Grange, KY: Brian has had no problem fitting into our new environment here in Kentucky.  In fact, he suited up for the Mariners and played his first game within the first few days.  I was honestly hesitant on whether to sign him up or not, knowing he wouldn’t have any practices, and playing in a more competitive league than he’s used to.  Brian put all my concerns to rest after his first game, however.  He went 1-2 at the plate, and played well.  More than anything, his smile after the game, and the simple statement “I had fun” was all I needed to hear.  Yeah, he may be a step behind some of the other players, but at the same time he is contributing to his team, and is a step ahead of others.
