Greetings one final time everyone from the Arizona Fall League. We have endured a long seven weeks of additional baseball, and we’re now faced with just 2 remaining games. It has been a great experience for me to play in this league because of the stiff competition and valuable time to soak up more of this game. Although I think most everyone is somewhat worn down from a combination of the regular season and the fall games, we are grateful to have the opportunity to participate in such a premier venue. Following these last games, I will be headed back home to Texas where I will look forward to spending the Thanksgiving holiday with my family and friends. I am really excited about this because it has been 2-3 months since I have been able to see them. I think one person looking forward to it more than myself would be my mother; so mom, I’ll see you soon!
Anyway, the past week or so, many of us have been trying to find things to do to break up the daily monotony of playing and merely relaxing at home. Chris Valaika and I decided to go to a Jason Mraz concert last Sunday night, and this allowed us to shake things up a little. We had a good time listening to the talented Mr. Mraz, and we even ran into other guys from the fall league! Come to find out, Gordon Beckham of the Saguaros was sitting just a few seats away from us, so we were able to visit during breaks in the show. Since we had not done anything of this nature upon arriving out here, it was nice to experience something new.
I want to take this time to thank Jonathan Mayo of mlb.com for allowing me the opportunity to participate in this fall league blogging. It was my first blog experience, and with the support of all you fans, it has been a really neat thing for me to be a part of. Hopefully, I’ll get another chance to do something similar in the future. As I said, it’s been a pleasure to keep everyone up to date with things happening out here, and I wish all a happy holiday season!
