It's been a rough two years going through my divorce but I've found out that he won't give you more than you can handle, is true. What doesn't kill you only makes you stronger. The hardest part was going 14 months without seeing my kids. But I managed to keep a positive attitude through it all and be patient, although it was tough. It all worked out for the best and I haven't been this happy in years. There are several things that I am passionate about but I would say the two most important to me are my family and baseball. I absolutely would do anything for my family. My mother taught me several things in life how to dance, how to treat a women, how to do laundry and many others, but one thing I learned the most from my mother was how to love. To love people, life and most of all yourself. If you are not happy in life then why live it, live happy, joyful and spiritual, she would say. As a little boy I took on playing baseball and I guess I was just naturally gifted because it came very instinctive and natural to me. I remember my mom at every game cheering me on even when i would make a mistake she would holler "it's ok get that mind right and everything else will follow". She was right. I played baseball all thru high school, then four years of college ball, couple years semi and then I began coaching. This is where I found my home. i love to coach, I've been doing it for 15 years now all volunteer work no monatary value to speak of, but to watch the kids grow in the game and in life and become great young men and great ball players, that's my pay check. I can't get enough of it. So between the two I have been blessed to be able to have learned and lived as much as I have and keep doing both everyday.
