We were fortunate to share one day in Florida with Tim and his boys. Despite all the fun things his Dad had planned one of our great nephews still reported that playing catch had been the best part.

When you love baseball and live in a place where ice and snow prevents you from playing outdoors for many months getting a chance to throw the ball around outside is special.
