Fergie Jenkins Book Signing Coming Up!!!

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!!!

Celebrity First Pitch – The Blue Man Group

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…

Rickey Henderson Gets His Jersey Retired Today!!!

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.

Congratulations Rickey!!!
