Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 52 year old Rector of St. John's Episcopal Church of Detroit. Piety Hill refers to the old name for our neighborhood. The neighborhood has changed a great deal in the over 150 years we have been on this corner (but not our traditional biblical theology) and it is now known for the neighboring theatres, the professional baseball and football stadiums and new hockey/basketball arena.

Game Ball

Andrew's Little League team had their second game today, and won this one by an indentical score as the first one - 17-12. Andrew has had an amazing hitting streak. In 7 at bats in 2 games he has 6 doubles and a single. Today he had 3 of those doubles, scoring 5 RBI's. He also accounted for, or assisted in, at least a half-dozen outs, if not more. The highlight was in the 4th inning, when with one out, Andrew caught a line-drive at first, and then stepped on the bag to get the runner who was on first out before he could tag up, thereby getting an unassisted double-play.

After each game the coach gives the game ball. Before the coach could even begin the several of the teammates began saying that Andrew should have the ball - and the coach agreed. Nice to be honored not only by the coach but by teammates as well.

What a fun way to spend a Saturday Morning - watching your son play baseball...and with some proficiency! Yes, I am really excited and proud of him!
