Ryan Howard’s Beachfront Home Near Completion

It’s been a few months since Baseball Ross and I made the pilgrimage to Belleair Shore to check on the progress of the monstrosity of a 17,000 soft home  that Ryan Howard is building on the beach.

The Tampa Bay Times noted that Howard spent $80K on doorknobs alone. After several years it appears that it is nearing  completion.  Gone is the construction trailers, white work men’s vans and portapotties that lined the front yard.

You can read my previous stories HERE and HERE.

The pictures I took on Mother’s Day are below: 


Hopefully, Ross and I will have the time to take a walk on the beach side and I will post pictures from that side when we do.

Cody Asche Back in Uniform

I was pleasantly surprised to see my favorite Phillies fielder back in uniform tonight. He dons the grey and red of the Threshers for the game against the Tampa Yankees. 

Cody is playing left and batting second.



Asche had been sidelined since spring training with an oblique injury.

He’s Baaaack, Andrew Pullin Returns to the Threshers

Whether he had a change of heart and decided not to retire or they made him an offer he couldn’t refuse, I do not know. What I do know is that it is good to see Andrew Pullin back on the field.
