Play Ball

Good morning! Are you a baseball fan? Have you been watching the World Series this year between the Astros and the Dodgers? We are baseball fans since I can remember. Baseball is the number #1 sport in my country, so I had no choice but to watch it with my parents as we had but one TV.
Little did I know that one day our own son would be a professional baseball player! This is why every baseball layout that I make is very meaningful to me. This is one of my latest kits, Play Ball.

Do you see these awesome pictures?  On the left is our son when he was about 6 years old with his favorite ballplayer; Rick Renteria of the Florida Marlins.  And here they are this past summer.  Rick is now the Manager of the Chicago White Sox and Danny plays for him.  Rick thought that Danny was kidding him when he told him that he had been his favorite player.  We dug through my old scrapbooks (nice scrapping technique, huh?), found this photo and sent it to him.  They both had a good laugh.

Their wives wanted them to recreate the original pose but both men said, "No way!  This is good enough.  Hurry up and take the picture"

It's fun to scrapbook, but it's even more fun to find an old memory like we did here and in the process make a new one!

Have a blessed day!


  1. I loved this story!
    And love you! ❤️

  2. What a beautiful story! Continuing to pray for your Danny.
