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.

Baseball is starting!

The Tiger pitchers and catchers report for Spring Training in less than two weeks - Hurray!

But even closer to home, we got a phone call yesterday, asking Andrew to join the 10 year old tournament team. Practice started YESTERDAY! They are practicing this month at an indoor facility on Sunday afternoons. Then in March they add a few weekday evenings (indoor and out if weather permits). And then they play their first tournament in April before the regular little league season begins.

He then plays on a regular Little League team for the regular season, and plays another tournament Memorial Day weekend when there are no Little League games. After the regular season ends in Late June, they then play in tournaments, including the Little League District playoffs.

I can almost smell the fresh cut grass and hear the crack of the bat!
