Well, the wife has graciously agreed to send me to the Pittsburgh Pirates Fantasy Camp in January of 2011. This will be the 40th anniversary of the 1971 Pittsburgh Pirates team that won the World Series over the Baltimore Orioles.
In preparation, I found a Cooper glove on eBay that is similar to one I had as a young man, and bought some used cleats and an aluminum baseball bat.
Also, a former co-worker of mine that played minor league baseball has offered to help me get ready so that I might not be too embarrassed. I went over to Dayton to work with him for a little while, and it is clear that my throwing, fielding, and hitting need lots of work.
But I predict it is going to be an awesome week of baseball and camaraderie in Bradenton. Only 86 days to go...
