My Saturday Night

Made it to my first Greenville Drive game of the season. The Drive are the Red Sox low A affiliate. Things got ugly early for the Rome Braves, and they ended up using their backup catcher to mop up after back to back blowouts. I was mocked throughout the evening for wearing a Mantle jersey to a Red Sox park.

I did get to see some bombs, as Jeremy Hazelbaker put one out to center, and there were a couple hit over the mini-monster. A good game with great company.

My first blog

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading the multitude of baseball card blogs, so much so I decided to start my own. My goal is to post every few days, share my recollections on the players and cards I grew up with, and try to complete some sets as well as help others fill their want-lists. Hopefully I can entertain at the same time.
