There is no doubt that love is an art form!     Yes it is a natural emotion.  It can also be enhanced and taught by people caring and showing love to others.   This baseball team has been blessed with a group of fathers who are not afraid to show their feelings.     The result has been that this ...

Interesting how we keep finding similarities between sports and our business....   One of the elements of observing baseball games is watching how each member of the team covers his part of the enormous field.   Obviously no one can be everywhere.  The successful teams have taught the players whe...

There are times when one can question what we thought we have seen.   One such time is when the umpires calls of safe or put do not concur with what my eyes conveyed to my brain.  This is interesting since the older umpires se to consistently call things like I see them.  Hummm.   There is one um...

THIRTEEN homes closed in the Windrose Subdivision in March and April of 2012!     Prices ranged from $139,900 for a three-bedroom foreclosure all the way up to $500,000.  Windrose has a price point for every budget, and is one of the few "master-planned communities" in the Houston area! The avera...

As we age we find that the amount of effort to achieve a goal should be in proportion with the good to be gained.   When there is more effort needed than the goal is worth we tend to feel robbed.   Have you ever watched how much time and effort the person playing the position of catcher expends e...

So where do you throw the ball when you catch it at second base and there is a runner coming to third like a locomotive with another runner headed to home base?   Well  this  dilemma  resulted in the ball staying in the glove!     The short seconds of confusion resulted in the opposing team makin...

When the second baseman caught the ball with the first base runner headed for second base,  he had a moment of confusion and fired the ball to the first baseman who missed it!   Our team was up seven runs at the time but it was a definite oops....   The incident seemed to rock the worlds of all t...

Several of the games we have been to in the past couple of weeks were extremely exciting,   In all of these cases it was due to the antics of the team members.   For whatever reason,  the playing techniques were unbelievably off.   Huge scores were run up by the opposing teams while our guys seem...

When the sun is in your eye and flies are swarming around the spectators sitting on the humid bleachers, it does detract from the game.   Same sun is in the eyes of the batters on both teams in the field too.   All these kids and their parents have made great efforts just to show up at the field,...

Last night we watched a young catcher play his heart out.   The opposing team was playing better than our team was.  All our at bat time just did not quite connect.  The hits that were achieved were caught or did not allow runs to be scored.   For this team that had become quite accustomed to win...

How do you retrieve a ball from the to of the dug out?   First you jump off the bench and hit the roof with your hand on your way down,  Repeat that process several times to get the ball close to the edge!   Then you get a bat and hit the roof til the ball drops into the spectator area.   You can...

One of the most unsung Heros in American sports are the umpires.   These folks have to be totally objective in their observations , all of the time.  Without their input there would be total chaos on the field.   Not only do they have to be able to see from all angles,  they have to go totally by...

  It's OK I am used to it!   That was the comment made by our seven year old grandson when his gramps congratulated him on making four picture perfect catches of fly balls during a game. We found that amusing at first but at second thought , it made astoundingly good sense. We do tend to be produ...

To run or pt to run? That seems to become a burning question whenever one hits a baseball.   Last night a young man seemed to be frozen on second base.  He stood there as a runner from first thundered down upon him.   The second base resident looked right and left where the base coaches were scre...

Have you ever paid attention to what the shouts of the maddening crowd seem to do to the players?   It is amazing to hear what well meaning parents scream at their children from the comfort of the bleachers.   Last night was an especially tight game.  The boys were playing their hearts out.   Eac...

When you see young aspiring players, it is cause for the question,  "will he still want to play when he gets to be old enough"   The child in the photo seems to be totally absorbed in the game.     His older sibling is one of the truly outstanding hitters,  who is also incredibly accurate at catc...

One of the most apparent skills gained by the players on the young baseball team we spend so much time watching, is the ability to slide.   This recently acquired running enhancement is fun to watch!  It also adds a great deal of drama to the normal base attacks.   It also has the potential to ad...

Observing the team getting ready for the big event can give you insights into what will be the intensity of the game.   When the players are highly alert and react quickly, it is a sign that they have come to give the game their best efforts.   While watching them tonight, it occurred to me that ...

We observed a beautiful life skill illustrated last night at a little league game.   The opposing teams first baseman did not have the catching or throwing skills usually possessed by players in that position.   This young man was not to be slowed down by this situation.   After several players g...
