When I played the videogame Hardball II in the 1990s, I realized how to format the playoffs

So there are ups and downs in this trip as I have ventured out on this journey. It is not just the baseball games that I am going to….I am trying to fully heal my body and brain after having a bad accident years ago where I was hit and run by a guy.
I have come back 97% to what I need to be, but every once in a while that 3% seeps into the foray. I had one of those events yesterday.
Over the weekend, we hosted 35 ballpark chasers at my friend Ken Lee’s house in Renton. This is virtually every extreme ballpark guru in the group across the nation, with the exception of a few omissions. Ken and I sponsored a barbeque at his house in Renton, WA, USA (Home of Manfish Brewing) – and because of my free car rental days, I was able to secure transportation for all who needed shuttling around Saturday, Aug.22/2015. I also drove for 7 hours around the city picking up the top ‘ballpark chasers’ of the country.
It was a grand old-time, and all of us had the time of our lives, however I probably kicked up the adrenaline too much, and Monday was a big let down. I am feeling much better again at today. The 2nd Annual Ballpark Chasers Meetup in Seattle was a resounding success, and we set the bar high for future venue’s hosting the event in future years.
The following people had a big impact on my weekend: Ken Lee, Scott Bultman JR, Gary Herman. Mike Casiano, Paul Nieuwland, Craig Landgren, Doug Miller, Josh Robbins, Mark Chesna, Tike and Dawn Narry – and of course the rest of the 35 people at the barbeque and 60 or so people at the actual games this weekend
