Great New Friends Y’all!!!


Words can not describe the whirlwind of emotions that we experienced this past week. We have played our fair share of travel ball tournaments, experienced fantastic times, have been a part of a lot of fun times and built wonderful memories. This past week far surpasses anything we have experienced to date. I would be lying if I did not say we had doubts, even up until the time we stepped out of the car in Syracuse. It took a total of five minutes and I felt like I had known you and Coach Brian my entire life. Thank You!!

Thank you for welcoming us and going out of your way to make us feel like we had been a part of the family the entire time. Looking back over the past nine days, I can not pin point an event that was not entertaining and exciting. And that, is before the first pitch had been thrown. The games were icing on the cake. I wish words could explain just how bad we did not want this week to end and how sad it was to drive past the entrance to Cooperstown one last time. I honestly do not know how you do it every year. It was simply gut wrenching for me. However, you should see all the texts that have been flowing back and forth from everyone wanting to get come back together next year, somewhere, just to play. It appears everyone from Massachusetts to Oklahoma is ready. As of today the team name is the Wisconsibamatexacoagoklachusettes Burgerts. What do you think of that? Along those lines, I was wondering if it would be too much trouble for you to send me a list of email addresses of the parents for the players for W.A.S. – Black. If it works out, Y’ALL (I understand that is a word people learned this week … LOL) will have to be a part of it.

I absolutely want us to stay in touch with each other. If you and Brian are ever, anywhere close to Alabama, please feel free to come see us. You have a place to stay, as long as you like. I really hope you and Brian can make that trip soon.

I have attached a couple of the team pictures. I will probably upload them to photo bucket or something but I will send you the link in case the file is too large. Each Picture is over 6 mB. If you can receive that large of a file let me know and I will send them one at a time.

Michelle, thank you so very much again. Thank you for all the hard work you put forward to make this happen. Thank you for making Daniel, Misty and I a part of your family. Thank you for having a fantastic sense of humor.

Please stay in touch.
