Piety Hill Musings

The ramblings of the 51 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.

Congrats Grosse Pointe Park Little League 11 year olds!

Even though we were disappointed that Andrew did not make the 10 year old team, we were very happy that the 11 year old team not only won the district championships (as did the 8,9 and 12 year olds), but also won the State Championship today. Last night's semi-final was 17-2 (ended early due to mercy rule) and today was 15-0 (also a mercy after 5 innings).

Bodes well, we hope, for next year's 12 year old team. The 12 year olds, if they win state, advance to midwesterns and then if they win that they go to Williamsport to play in the US/World Series.
