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.

Yesterday's and Today's baseball excitement.

Yesterday, William's instructional league team, the Orioles, blasted their opponent by a final score of 22-3. The mercy rule was in effect for innings 2 thru 6. They scored 2 in the first inning, the maximum four in the rest of the innings. The Orioles allowed the other team to get one run in the 2, 4, and 6 innings. WILLIAM discovered something on Monday when I had the at the park for batting practice. He actually hits better RIGHT Handed! He, like his brothers all hit lefty! But William's third at bat in the game he hit from the right side and ripped it into the outfield for a double!

Today, Andrew was "called up" to Triple A to play on the Cardinals as a sub for a boy who was sick. Andrew took advantage of the opportunity by getting two hits, an RBI, and scoring 2 runs. A good day! The Cardinals were down 8 - 0 after three innings and came back to win, beating the first place diamondbacks 10-9!

Finally, I have some baseball news for me. For my birthday yesterday Jennifer and the boys got me Fantasy Batting Practice at Comerica Park in September, where I get to hit off of Tiger alumni great Dave Rozema among other things! I look forward to it!
