He did it again. Fergie Jenkins has written another book and I cannot wait to get my hands on it. Actually, let me take that back. I can wait. As long as I’m waiting to get it signed by Fergie before it arrives at my house!!!
Fergie will be signing this book on August 6 at Anderson’s Book Store in Naperville, Il. It’s kind of ironic that I spent three of my high school years in Naperville and now one of my baseball idols will be in my home town for a promotional visit. I called the great people at Anderson’s and have reserved my copy of Fergie : My Life From The Cubs To Cooperstown.
As soon as I get this book in the mail you can expect a post showing off the goods!! I cannot wait!!!

I’m not sure that I get the point of ‘The Blue Man Group’. I find them to be a little odd and quirky. While I have heard that their shows are amazing, I have never really received a solid story about what they do to entertain a crowd…
Either way, I am extremely jealous that the guys got to throw out a pitch at Wrigley Field…

It has been a hell of a week for Mr. Henderson. From Hall of Fame enshrinement in Cooperstown last weekend to Oakland for the retirement of his #24 A’s jersey later tonight.
All of these honors are fitting for one of the most decorated and talented players to suit up for a major league baseball club in the last fifty years.
A true original that will never be outmatched, Rickey Henderson absolutely deserves this honor!!! I will be sure to post pictures from the big event as soon as they are available.
