May was an exciting month to be a Yastrzemski fan! Vanderbilt's regular season came to a close this month, but not before the Commodores achieved not only their best record in school history (48-7), but they also set a new SEC wins record by going 26-3. Michael led the team in the SEC games this season batting .407 (.333 - for the season). He also joined fellow teammate, Tony Kemp, by being selected to the All-SEC first team & All-Defensive team. Here's hoping that they can win it all in
Well, if someone had told me at the beginning of the month that Boston would have the best record in the MLB at the end of the month, I'd have thought that to be a rather good April Fools Day joke! But that's exactly where they are as we head into May. What a turnaround from last season. Here's hoping that they can keep this up as the season progresses!
Meanwhile, in Nashville, Michael & the Commodores went 14-2 this month to put their record at 39-6 going into the final month
Well, Spring is officially here & Major League Baseball has started for the season! Although I'm still more anxious to get home from work to read the box scores on how Michael is doing down in Nashville. Unfortunately his average has dropped some this month as he's now batting .297 for the season & he did commit his first error of the season. But his power & speed are improving as he added another HR, triple, 6 doubles & 5 stolen bases this month. I was also fortunate enough
What an amazing month this was for my collection! It also meant the start of the 2013 Baseball season for Vanderbilt University! Michael started his final season with the Commodores with a respectable stat line going 11 for 32 (.344), 9-R, 9-RBI, 6-BB, 4-K, 7-SB, 1-CS, 2-HBP, 0-ERR, 1-2B, 1-3B, 1-HR, 1-SH & 3-SF. He definitely did better than I did for the month when it came to winning auctions as I went 5 for 16 (.313).
The first week quickly brought in a nice eBay win for a
Had an amazing day today! This was the first card show that I've been to in close to a decade & even though it was just a small show it reminded me how much fun I used to have going to them. I miss the days when the little town I live in used to have monthly shows. What made this one even better than any other was getting the opportunity to meet a fellow member of SCF. That member was BSEBALLCOMMISH75. We've done a few trades already on the site & have already made plans to attend the
