It'll be a little different for us this year. The D2 university son was at did not renew his scholarship (his grades slipped) so he decided to go back to the junior college and get his AA (he was a few credits shy when he transferred to the 4 year university) before he goes on to different university (that's the plan anyway). So officially he hung up his cleats, but he's listed as a "student assistant" (volunteer coach) for the JuCo.
It won't quite be the same, but I'm glad he's keeping his hand in the sport he loves.
I should add the D2 university coach still wanted him, but couldn't offer any money.
Fox, sorry to hear about the re-route. Really great that he is able to jump right in to the coaching gig, though. Keep us in the loop with how that goes. That will provide him with a whole new set of baseball challenges!
