Hi, Lou. Yes, in spite of the negatives, I DID enjoy myself at the baseball tournament. I always have a good time watching Josh catch.
This Fall, Josh will be a Junior, and should be on the high school Varsity team. He played JV last year because Varsity had two (seniors) catching or he'd probably have been Varsity then. He practiced with them when he was in 8th grade. Naturally, because he wasn't in high school, he couldn't play games then.
Three years ago, when Josh was just 13, college coaches approached him with things like, "When you're ready to go to college, consider such-and-such a school" and told him the benefits of their school. I don't know yet about this year, but I dare say that coaches had an eye on him again (still).

â€śThe truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.â€ť ~M. Scott Peck
