I’m crushed. Roy Halladay has always been a favorite of mine. Quiet, but always seemingly approachable. Once he was retired he lived in the Clearwater area and it wasn’t unheard of someone saying they’d seen him around town. Last time I saw him in person was at the end of the season this year. He […]
Four long years. Tonight was the culmination of four years work to create a a deal that was fair and affordable that would keep the Toronto Blue Jays Spring training home here in Dunedin. Dunedin isn’t a big city. There’s only 35,000 people in town. We don’t have high rise hotels on the beach or […]
Just an update: Baseball Ross and I are NOT in an evacuation zone and will not be leaving.

I’m going to give away my age here, but the story is one that is more important than my vanity. When I was just a little girl, my family wasn’t a baseball family, we were a hockey family. We watched the Philadelphia Flyers religiously. My older brother had the classic poster of Bobby Clarke with […]
