Charlie’s looking very focused at the plate during his team’s latest game. The Rays thrashed the arch-rival A’s 29-12 and are now undefeated after three games. So far Charlie’s first year in Bronco/Pony baseball is going very well. Keep it up, buddy!
Charlie and me (and Gordon Beckham and Adam Dunn) at Camelback Ranch. We made it to three White Sox games on our visit to Arizona and had a great time, despite the Sox losing two out of three.

Here’s the 2009 Horsham Junior Baseball Club Mustang League A’s unofficial team photo. We began our regular season yesterday with a tough loss to the Mets, who scored three runs in the bottom of the last inning to edge us 12-11. You can follow the A’s on Twitter: www.twitter.com/mustang_as
They don’t call Jim Thome Mr Incredible for nothing! What a game! What a trio of games! I feel emotionally drained already and the playoffs are only starting. I love the photo below of Alexi Ramirez taken the moment he realises he has just hit a grand slam in the game against the Tigers. It will go down as a baseball classic, and might even win a Pulitzer Prize. This team believes now. They have momentum. Anything can happen.
Charlie holds up a sign we made for last night’s Arizona Diamondbacks game at Chase Field. Despite holding it up between innings througout the entire game, for some strange reason the cameramen decided not to show it on the giant screen in center field. Hmmm, and we thought we were being nice by saying thanks!?
