    Take the 74 pages and write a book. Then make a movie. Good luck.

    Yea jake it's been a long journey. A friend asked me the other day what makes baseball so special?

    I thought and remembered. Little Sparks senior year he pitched against our crosstown rivals. Didn't make it out of the second inning. They were literally hitting every pitch he threw.

    His next game was against the state champions and they were stacked. He threw his first no hitter and stuck out 13.

    That's baseball.

    Pretty big day around here. It's a long journey from the first post I posted on this thread more than a decade ago.

    Played his last game last night. Tough night. Gave 2 earned runs but was in trouble in all 3 innings.
    Finished his first year with a respectable 2.49 era. 4 saves no losses or wins.

    If Sparks grandson needed the work then he should be getting more innings. But with his low ERA you got to keep one of your best pitchers game ready by pitching him more often.

    Jett, I agree. Would actually be disappointed if the coach did that. Silly for me to even think it.
