Tag Archives: Minoring In Baseball

M.I.B. turns 5!

I will interrupt my posts on the 2014 Baseball Trip for some important news. It’s hard to believe that five years ago today, Minoring In Baseball was created, and the first post was written. This blog has been a great hobby, and I’m very thankful for MLBlogs and the opportunity to share my baseball adventures with everyone. I’ve made some great friends on this network, and have seen some great blogs come and go over the years. When contemplating how to celebrate this milestone, the only thing that felt right is a simple thank you to everyone who has ever stopped by and read a blog, or checked out the game photos over the last five years. Here’s a photo of the kids and I from back in 2009:

Thank you again to all my friends on MLBlogs, to Mark for keeping this network running, and to all the bloggers past and present I’ve had the pleasure to interact with the last five years! I look forward to many more.

One hot summer

It’s been an extremely hot summer for us up north here. We’re not really used to the high 80’s to 90’s we’ve been experiencing the last few months. Along with the humidity, it can be brutal. The kids had a tough time playing in the heat sometimes, especially Lily, who played ball during the heat of the day. It’s starting to cool off, though, and we’re getting the rain that we really do need. This just makes fall look like it’s closer than it is, though, and with school just a couple of weeks away, and Trevor already in having football practice, it just reminds me that the summer is very quickly coming to an end…

Some fantasy baseball M.I.B. style

Fantasy baseball isn’t easy. My biggest jab at football fans is how lazy they are. They only commit to their team once a week, and make such a big deal out of one game. When trying to recruit teams for fantasy baseball, I get the same remark from football fans: “What? I’ll have to check it almost every day! Fantasy football you only have to check once a week.”

Lazy, lazy footballers. Well, if anyone on the blogosphere would like to partake in some fantasy baseball, feel free to join my league. It’s all for fun, free, and the lucky winner just might get a congratulatory e-mail from ME if I’m not feeling lazy. It’s through Yahoo! sports, so everyone by now should have some kind of Yahoo! account. The League ID is: 77279. The password is: beer. Enjoy.
