Life Lessons from Davey


Greg, a recovering addict, reminds us what it means to go “1-0.”
“I bet you take things one day at a time,” I offered.
“Nope,” he responded. “A lot can happen in a day. I take things one step at a time.”
Greg has been going 1-0 for 12 years.

Our World Series Game Three crew included some regulars, like my annual spring training companions Ed (center) and Steve (right).

We were also able to get tickets for Patrick and Johnny (9). One each of Roundy’s children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren couldn’t miss it!

Had the chance to personally thank Nationals Manager Davey Martinez and President of Baseball Operations Mike Rizzo for the book’s Epilogue at the annual “Cigars and Curveballs” fundraiser to support the DC Grays, a baseball/softball program for kids from underserved areas of DC, Maryland, and Virginia. (5/9/22).

How better to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day 2024 than at Spring Training with Msgr. Stephen Rossetti, Washington Nationals Team Chaplain?

I told them that all of us have dark times in our lives. But we, too, need to ‘Stay in the Fight,’ a good motto for life. If we do, we too will be winners regardless of what may come.”
