Birth of Baseball
Thursday, 15-July-2010 - Haarlem - Baseball (honkbal in Dutch) is born when a child sees his or her hero for the first time. Yesterday, I witnessed this for myself when I watched a pitcher Diegomar Markwell of the Dutch National team autograph a baseball (photo). I also got a to briefly speak with Team USA's head coach Jeff Willis. My son Chris, shortstop for the Oss Cardinals Mens Nr3 team, nudged me when a couple of USA uniforms came into sight. Chris invited me to join him today at the 2010 Haarlemse Honkbalweek. Claudia and Rosan joined us.
I was born in 1949. We lived on a corner of my grandpa's farm in Amelith, a church community about six miles from Bay City, Michigan, USA.
