Tonight is the Babe Ruth year end banquet. It is held at the Red & White Club at McMahon Stadium. The food was amazing last year, buffet style. I seem to have had quite a few buffet meals of late. Well, pretty much I won’t complain when someone else is doing the cooking for me.
We have a fairly good turnout from our team. I don’t know if we have any award winners or not, I do hope so. We didn’t do that well in the standings, but we had some stand out players for sure.
This week has flown by. Already Thursday. This will be the first weekend that I have not had baseball in a bit. I did have the month of August off, but who remembers August now? I will settle into my late fall and winter routine. This winter, that should include being on the Board of Directors for Babe Ruth as well, as long as I am elected. That shouldn’t be an issue, there aren’t typically a line-up of people willing to volunteer.
Great baseball games last night. The Jays held off being eliminated with a good win over the Royals. I do think it is only a matter of time, the time being tomorrow, I would guess but I will hopefully be wrong on that one. The Mets swept the Cubs out of the play-offs. Poor Cubs… They will get there again, eventually. It is some great ball, that’s for sure.
My play-off predictions from a few weeks ago are pretty far off. The Cardinals were eliminated in the first round, I had them for World Series Champions. Oh well, what can ya do. At any rate, it is some great baseball and more to come for sure.
