Okay well I just wanted to start off by letting everyone know that this is my 100th blog that I have posted, and today is also my B-day. It’s like a double shot of love. lol That’s was a reality show on MTV incase you didn’t get that. lol I wasn’t sure what to really write about for my 100th blog. I know my Giants play tonight against the Brewers and we have Randy Johnson on the mound. That game starts at 7:15, so I know no matter what I’m doing I will be by a TV at that time. I was really planning on taking it easy tonight, cause tomorrow I’m going out to dinner/drinks then going to the Tank to see the Sharks game.
Well since no one really knows much about the people’s blogs they read. I have decided to tell you guys a little about me. It all started when I was a twinkle in my dad’s eyes. lol jk Okay well here is something about me. I love
to watch/talk about sports. I love my Warriors, Sharks and Giants. I follow the A’s but can’t say I love them. They messed that up by sweeping us in the 89 World Series. lol I play softball on a tournament team. We do a little traveling but nothing to far from home unless it’s a big tourney. Softball/baseball is my passion. I love being out there on the field and at the plate taking my swings. Well I don’t play baseball anymore. Ever since my community college stint ended, so did my baseball career. I do play softball on Friday nights in a league and tourney’s like twice a month. I know when people think of softball they think it’s so easy and blah blah, but it’s really not. We play in a competitive league/tourney’s. Pitchers are trying to fake you out before they even pitch. This past weekend I played in Manteca Ca. at a place called Big League Dreams. I have played there a ton of times, but just thought I would share it with you guys incase you haven’t heard of it. Each field is a replica of a major league field. Our first game was the Fenway Park replica. Guys were hitting it off the Monster.
I started this blog because I love to talk Baseball and don’t always have someone to talk about it with. None of my friends love the game as much as I do. I can sit with a complete stranger and talk about any team. I love my Giants, but I follow every team. Not just the Giants. I really wish I would have went to school to do something with baseball. Anyways I found this blog on MLB.com and decided to try it out. Then I started to read other blogs and have little conversations here and there with other people posting blogs. That’s why I decided to keep it going and look where I am…. #100 blog. lol
I think I have pretty much been rambling during this whole blog. Just wanted to share with people who I am, so I’m just not a title you see “King of Cali”. I do plan to keep this blog going for a little while longer, so I will share some photos and thoughts about baseball/ Giants baseball throughout the baseball season.

I have never posted a blog about this, but I did go to the Home Run Derby when it was at AT&T Park. I just wish I would have took more pictures. The battery died on the camera so I knew I only had a few pictures in it. It really was a cool experience to see all the booths and stuff they had set up outside of the stadium. Right when I walked in the stadium I went straight to the field. The National League team was having batting practice and the American League team was starting to stretch out in front of me. I got a couple pictures of some of them up close. It was just really cool to see all these players from different teams up close. These players seemed so loose and were just joking around. You knew they were all having a blast.
