Most of my time spent working as of late has been at the ballpark.
Letâ€™s face it, everyone would rather be doing something else, sometimes anything else, than work. But, when your desk is the bleachers and thereâ€™s a concession stand a few feet away, it makes working a little more tolerable.
Spending time watching all these baseball and softball games has reminded me of a million little things I loved so much growing up. There hasnâ€™t been a game where I havenâ€™t seen or heard something that takes me back, and I chuckle a little inside.
St. John Neuman (Fla) posed no problem for Bryant Monday, as the Hornets cruised to an easy 8-2 win in seven innings at Sanford, Fla. Bryant scored two runs in the third, four in the fifth and two in the sixth while St. John Neuman scored a run in the third and the sixth inning.
After giving up a run in the third, the Hornets came back in the bottom half of the inning to score two runs thanks to a passed ball and a single by Landon Pickett.
