Hey, hey! I know things were just starting to pick up steam- regular freelance writing spots and consistent podcast episodes- but that's how it goes, right? You find a groove and quickly get knocked off track. Some very last minute changes happened and I'm now back down in Phoenix, AZ for MLB Spring Training. I'm running the stadium audio for the Los Angeles Angels at Tempe Diablo Stadium. A pretty tough gig to pass up- playing tunes and watching baseball all day!
I have to admit, it's been really great being back at the ballpark. There's something about the energy of live events- always something new, a different challenge, and interacting with all of the people. So far, this has certainly been my most enjoyable Spring Training experience. All around, a perfect gig without a lot of stress or crazy stupid hours. An unthinkable combination in the baseball world- I lucked out!
The other great thing about being back in baseball is the people- I didn't realize how much I missed everyone until I was gone! Lots of great people. Today I was able to go out to Surprise Stadium and see all of my buddies at the Royals. Best clubbies in the game! It was also great seeing all of my Latin boys- missed those kats a ton.
Anyway, I'm not sure what any of this means or if it's a start to a new adventure. I do know that I return to CO on April 1 and plan on picking back up with writing, new media, and the podcasts- just like I never left. There's talks of returning to Diablo Stadium throughout the year for special events and also thoughts of returning to the Arizona Fall League this season. Just have to take it as it comes. Splitting my time between the two worlds might make for an amazing year- finishing The Final Book and working some baseball could be a lot of fun!
I am compelled to get back behind the computer and start writing again. It's only been a couple of weeks off, which may be a good thing to clear my head, but the gears have been turning and I'm itching to push forward!
