Stop the press!
My nephew, Jack Lynch, was just drafted by the St. Louis Cardinals!
Apparently, Jack heads to Jupiter, Florida, next week. The big leagues are calling and Jack, with that powerful left arm, eternal optimism, and dogged work ethic, will answer. It couldn’t have happened to a better kid. Or a better family.
I’m filled with joy. Because it’s cause to celebrate when something good happens to the good people in the world. Tonight, I plan to watch the All-Star game and might even throw in Field of Dreams.
Because I’ve walked in that cornfield on several occasions and made my kids do the same.
There’s something truly magical about our national pastime.
And now, Jack is a part of it.
I don’t have many more details to spin into a story. My brother Dennis texted that he will call to fill me in tomorrow. He’s rather preoccupied at the moment.
And tonight’s going to be rather busy at their house.
