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.

a good effort in the bottom of the sixth...

...but we came up short.

After a lackluster first 5 innings at the plate, the bats came alive in the bottom of the sixth (last inning) and we scored 6 runs (3 of them on Sam's second triple of the game) -but it was too little too late. We lost the championship 11-8.

Andrew has his first practice this year in late January. Sam and William started theirs in the beginning of April. Now 7 and 4.5 months later the seasons are over.

As the boys were getting ready for bed, Andrew asked "tomorrow is your day off, right?" "Can we play pickle? (a baserunning game)"

Maybe we won't oil up the mitts for Fall storage just yet.
My shoulder/elbow rehab can wait another day.
