This will always be my favorite layout - not because it's MY best - but because of what id signifies. My son finally believing in himself and finding out what happens when you give 110%
The hidden journaling reads:
This one moment happened during the Championship game between the Bridgeport Cardinals and the Boyd Jackets June 16, 2005 This photograph was taken seconds after it happened!
*Unlike the previous two playoff games (which ya'll won) the Cardinals' pitchers were struggling. It was the first inning and there were 2 outs. One of which was almost a double play because of your quick thinking - you (playing second base) fielded the ball , tagged the runner going to second and then threw the ball to first - unfortunately the first baseman dropped the ball. *The bases loaded with walks and the score was 5-0 Boyd. Everyone was disappointed with how the game was going so far. Then it happened! The batter smashed an arching line drive between first and right field. Everyone thought that ball was going to hit the fence before anyone could reach it. We just knew they were going to score at least 3 more. The next thing we see is you leaping through the air and stretching your body to it's limits; all of a sudden you snatched the ball OUT OF THE AIR! 3RD OUT! The inning was over!! You did it!! Your teammates were elated! The team rallied after this and played an extraordinary game! The Cardinals became the Champions winning 17-12. *You are a great ball player, and your love for the game is evident. This moment, though, made you realize all those things Daddy has been telling you for all these years is really true. If you give 110% and never quit; if you believe in yourself; if you want it badly enough; if you work for it - it can happen in just ONE MOMENT!
