One Loss, One Win...

That, my friends, is a major league baseball. While attending the Detroit Tiger game last night a 5th inning foul ball found its way into my grubby little conservative paw.

I have attended many Tiger games in my 56 years and was at this one with my wife as part of a birthday present from my oldest daughter and son-in-law. I have come close to foul fly once when I was 10 or 12 attending a game at the old Tiger Stadium with my father and grandfather. This one had my name on it though. As my wife ducked in mortal fear, I reached up and there it was! A catch for the ages.

Tiger baseball has many great memories for me. I took one girl on a date that included a Tiger game doubleheader and today, July 27, 2009, that girl and me are celebrating our 35th wedding anniversary.

Go get 'em Tiger!


  1. Congrats on both! The ball and the babe. Is Shang all over YouTube with this snag?

  2. I wish. Maybe someday I'll get to relate the game with you over a beer...that seems the way to things these days.
