Rising Stars

Hey guys, I’m back from my little hiatus. I’m sorry I left you guys hanging but between playing games and and trying to equally divide my spare time between my girlfriend, family, and agents, things got a little hectic and my blogging kind of took a back seat to all those people. Unfortunately, they have all left me alone and although I will miss them dearly until I get to go home, I’m back to blogging. 

So anyways, the past couple weeks for the Mesa Solar Sox have been, for lack of a better phrase, hit or miss. We either absolutely crush a team, or we get absolutely crushed. I can’t remember the last time I played in a close game or in a game that scored less then 10 total runs. Not only does this inconsistent play keep us guessing which team is going to show up, its also the unfortunate recipe for lonnnng, boring baseball. Having a team lead by 10-12 runs in the 5th inning not only makes for a 3-4 hour game, but also sucks the life out of the atmosphere and just isn’t the ideal baseball game scenario. So hopefully every team starts figuring out how to keeps game close and exciting. 
On a lighter note, I was selected to participate in the AFL Rising Stars game, which is really exciting because not only is it an honor to play in this game, it is going to be televised on MLB network. The only thing I want to do is go deep in a nationally televised game with all my friends and family watching back home. That would be unreal. Haha, so hopefully I’ll see a bunch of you guys out there and complete my task. 
Until next time…
