Spring Training Nearing End

So apparently you guys have made me discover a new talent of mine and that is writing blogs.. who would have ever thought!

To give you a little context on that statement, I will give you a little bit of a background on my past and me. I have never been interested in English or writing which makes writing this blog a little bit different for me. I took an English class in college but that was mostly the extent of my writing. Now I find myself getting done with one blog and already coming up with new ideas for the next. I honestly think I could write about double the amount I have been haha but I will try and save everyone a little bit and try not to overdue it.

Since I have started this blog its opened my eyes to many different things. Writing is something I have found to come pretty easy. after seeing my dad write a book and almost be done with his second, I have started one myself. Might not sell one copy but I’m really enjoying trying to put it all together.

For this blog entry I wanted to take some time and thank the people that have got me here and give a little insight on my background that you might not know, and maybe get a little more in-depth than most entries will. To start, my family has played a huge part in getting me where I am in the game today. From my mom and dad getting me on teams, to my grandparents Nana and Papa taking me to practices, it has truly been a family effort.  Now spring is in full swing and its so nice to be able to have family in town and let them enjoy spring training with me. It’s really nice to have my grandparents get to head out to the games with my parents and enjoy the Florida sun. Family is a huge part of my life and I have always been very close to them.

Dinner with parents at, you guessed it, Jettys!

Next, I am really thankful for the fans! Thanks to everyone reading my blog, everyone at every stadium across the nation, and everyone that follows the players on Twitter that have encouraging words as we hit the slumps that season brings. It has been really fun writing this blog because I get to interact with different individuals that I have never gotten to interact with.

Another perk is reading the comments on the page which I have started to respond to the comments so don’t be afraid to leave a comment. Another big shout out I have to give is to all of the rehab personnel I have worked with. There are so many people working with me to get me back on the field. It really is a cool process to have so many people back you up on the road to recovery.

The season is now coming up fast and I honestly have never been more excited. So many things have changed since the 2011 season. There were so many new faces in camp. It is crazy for me when I would head out to the field the first few days of camp and I honestly didn’t know half the people. Maybe I should do a better job of socializing!

With only a few days left rosters are getting close to being set and it’s fun to watch everyone get ready to head out from camp and get to where they are headed. You’ll see guys calling to ship their cars, guys trying to figure out who there living with, and everyone trying to figure out where they’re going to live. It really is hard to get everything done in such a short period of time, especially when you have no apartment where you’re headed or any furniture. We are really starting from scratch.

With that being said we all can’t wait to break camp and get to the teams and start playing games under the bright lights. After being in camp for a month it’s crazy to think it’s about to come to an end. I will try to get out another blog right at the start of season to let everyone know what I’m up to. I promise I’ll be having fun somewhere. Hope everyone is having a good week.

See you on twitter @jordanswagerty

God Bless and Happy Easter!

A treat to read ! Thanks. JRW

Thanks for reading!

Are you going to be at opening day at Chase Field?

OMG, love Jetty’s! Had an awesome meal there with your Mom. The lighthouse was a major draw. Good luck at the next stop on your journey.

I have enjoyed your writing very much. My wife and I just retured from Florida and enjoyed the ball park there very much. However, I would like to see more in your blogg on things like: where do you guys live while in spring training; daily schedules, etc. Like so many old men (65) we still dream about what might have been if only…Thanks for your work, wish you the best.

Good Luck on the season. Tell your pops I said hello, I haven’t seen him in a long time. Hope all is well.

Thanks for filling the fans in on everything that’s going on, and I’m glad your arm feels good! I’m sure it must have been rough coming back from Tommy John. Best of luck to you, and I for one will definitely buy your book when it comes out!
