Happy 120th to my first ‘best friend’

My Gramma McBride’s birthday recently came and went. She would have been 120 this year.

Indoor softball practices? Sure, why not

You know you live in Ankeny when your child’s softball team starts practicing on February 24. ūüôā

I challenged Maisa to list the states

It took a while, but she got all 50. She needed some “hints”¬†to get the¬†last five or so.

Just learned this

I never knew this factoid till today: Dodgers legend Roy Campanella owns the MLB record for highest caught-stealing percentage.a52ccbb5_davis

Campy threw out 57% of would-be base-stealers. WOW!!!

Yadi Molina of the Cardinals, considered the best throwing catcher of today’s generation, ranks 114th all-time at 44%.

Campy was an amazing talent, truly one of the best to ever play the game. Three MVP awards. Eight-time All-Star. Member of five National League championship teams. Inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 1969.

Campy’s No. 39 has been retired by the Dodgers and is on permanent display¬†at Chavez Ravine.
