I took some free time last week. I did so for a number of reasons, a bit of political burnout, a bit of malaise, and a bit of irritation that some things I wanted to do never seemed to get done.
We did, however, take time to celebrate the success of a close friend, Daryl, a man who went to school with our daughter and is the son of our Pastor. He was inducted into the Pittsburg State University Hall of Fame for baseball on Saturday.
Daryl has been a ball player all his life. A pitcher in high school and later in college. He tried out for the majors but didn’t quite make it but did make plenty of personal friends and contacts, and created more when he was a scout for a MLB team. He received a Master’s degree in Sports Administration, was an assistant coach for Central Missouri State University and is now the head coach for Avila University in Kansas City.
