As a kid, I started playing and watching sports before I was in kindergarten. The early ages were played with y brother in the backyard, but later joined GORC and later Wheaton Boys Club.
Baseball was my sport. Not just to play – but to study, read about, and absorb. I read the Orioles media guide cover to cover, Who’s Who in Baseball and played APBA board baseball.
Along the way I also played some Soccer and Basketball. But those sports didn’t stick like Baseball.
I played Baseball up to age 13, when recreation programs ended. I didn’t have the skill to compete.
Competition bit again in my 30’s as my kids started to play. And now it’s a major part of y life again!
