There is playoff baseball in Maryland! Although it may not be the actual Baltimore Orioles, rather their Double-A affiliate Bowie Baysox, it’s still playoff baseball!
One of the fun things about being an Orioles fan this year has been the news on the farm. As we have struggled to get through a tough year with the big league team, we got to hear about the success of the Baby Birds and even see some of the future.

It’s an 0-2 count, and before the bat can be lifted from the shoulder, a 100 mph fastball zips by, the bat swinging past it late, catching nothing but air. This has becomeContinue reading “Grayson Rising”
