Happy Thanksgiving


A day of thanks. To say I’m thankful for my family is an understatement. Im sure all of our guys have similar feelings. These past several months have been pretty crazy. All the guys on our brick man sports turf team along with a group of other major and minor league guys pulled off some pretty crazy projects. We were in Australia, Mexico, Panama and Taiwan all at the same time. Europe tours, Asia evaluations a lot of travel and memories to share with our friends and family. In many of the countries we have worked there are many who make do with very little. In many ways it’s very humbling and inspirational at the same time.

Thanksgiving is kind of our slow down time but this year it’s probably going to be a bit later. Nevertheless we have a lot to be thankful for. Our military and troops in Afghanistan, our missionaries serving the needy in poor countries… It’s a crazy world.

have a safe and wonderful thanksgiving.

MLB All Star Tour in Taiwan shifts to Taichung City


Taiwan is a small island with 16 baseball stadiums.  Some of the parks are Triple A level and could host major baseball events.  Couple that with baseball crazed fans and you have a wonderful fun-loving culture of baseball.   Today we headed south to play in Taichung after completing a rain shortened game the night before in Zingzuan Stadium, New Taipei City. Photo above are the guys from Zingzuan.  great group and a great job buy the youth baseball team. 

The All Stars are 2-0 and last night’s game in Taichung’s intercontinental field was a close one up to the final couple innings before the MLB guys scored a couple making it 5-3,

Checked out the Pig on a spit in the stands. Literally right behind in the mid level seats section. Open fire in the stands, the works.   A real ballpark pig pickin!

Many of you know that Taiwan is considered the land of the scooters.  There are millions on the road daily outnumbering cars 3 to 1.  Well it appears Mr. Morse from the Nationals was inspired and picked up a scooter helmet which he was sporting during BP.  These guys are really having fun.  It’s a good mix. 

Fields are holding up.  Infields are soft due to the lack of clay on the island which is requiring extra dragging and watering and rolling etc… but the guys are doing a great job.  Greg ( Jones) , Eric and Ryan.  Keep it up!
