April 2009

Something Interesting…

Wanted to let everyone know that the season has been going well so far, and the Palm Beach Cardinals are off to a 5-1 start.  Hopefully we can keep it rollin’.  Tomorrow we will be playing our third and final series game against the Sarasota Reds.  The other day in the clubhouse we happened to catch an interesting story on ESPN’s Outside The Lines about the best baseball stances in professional baseball.  They also did a side story on a guy who imitates pro baseball stances and swings.  I don’t know how people have heard of this guy, but he is amazing, and funny too.  One day his buddies started filming him in his backyard imitating baseball stances and posted it on you tube.  In the next couple of days, the videos received major hits and people were asking to see more.  Meet Gar Ryness,,better known as the “batting stance guy”.  I’ve posted his video of the 2008 all star lineup.  This guy is unbelievable…check out his other videos too.  – Kopper

Opening Day

Obviously today is an exciting day.   Today, April 9th, 2009 is a special day for all baseball players and fans around the world.  It is Opening Day for the Minor Leagues.  Hopefully everyone gets a chance to maybe eat some cracker jacks, drink a cold one, and sing “Take Me Out To The Ball Game” during a minor league game today. Today is a chance for fans to bring their friends and family to the ball park, and also a chance for the players to begin a new season with a fresh start.  Since we share facilities with Marlins, we open with a three game series against their affliate, the Jupiter Hammerheads.  Winning this ball game on opening day will definitely a good way to kick off the season.  Although I am not pitching today, it still is exciting to know that baseball season is officially started, and I hope everyone gets a chance to watch a Cardinal Game today.  Thanks. Have a great day!! -Kopper
