Sorry for the time in between these last two blogs, there are a couple reasons for it. The first one is that I actually got to go home for a 4 day weekend this past weekend. I had my last injection last Wednesday and went home Thursday thru Monday morning. It was very nice to go home for the first time in a few months and also probably the last time for a while. The weekend included home cooked meals, time with the family, time with the girlfriend, the beach, haha it was really nice…… The second reason was I forgot my password to log into my blog. Haha, so I had to get a new password and finally get back into things.
When I got back from my nice weekend at home, I came back to a nice little surprise involving the plan of action with my knee and the rehab. Turns out I started hitting and throwing the last few days and also am going to start trying to do some light agility work. I don’t really feel any significant relief with my knee right now, but we are just going to continue the rehab and increasing activity everyday as long as I can hold up and feel alright. The plan is to hopefully play in an extended game out here in Arizona in maybe 2-3 weeks and see how it feels. I’m hoping for the best and enjoying the time in the cages for now.
Since my last blog we’ve had this little thing called Opening Day happen. There’s nothing like opening day, every team has been waiting since the final out in their last game to get back out there and try to do better than last season, except for the Phillies, they are trying to do the same thing. Every opening day I’ve been involved in have been very exciting, but if I had to pick one that I would say was my favorite it would be my freshman year at Miami. I remember finding out the day before that I would be starting as the DH in the first game of my freshman year at the University of Miami. I was very excited and a little nervous at the same time; I ended up getting my first hit and rbi out of the way along with the first victory so it was a good day. And even though i’m not involved in an opening day this year, I am very excited to start watching baseball tonight and to start keeping up with all of the games around the league.
