...and with a Much Needed Diversion from the Recent Relief and Rebuilding Efforts, Here come the Houston Astros in the Postseason

Sports have always been part of my life. (That's me a few years ago...ok, a lot of years ago) Golf is my leisurely pastime and I truly enjoy watching football and basketball. However, baseball has its roots deep within me. Growing up, I loved playing the game. I was competitive and it was not just part of my life, it was life. Memories of those times at the field, pitching, running, cheering on my teammates, are still clear to me today. Baseball brings people together. Regardless of what may be happening in our lives, we can turn to baseball to give us a break. Maybe it takes us back to happier times. Or, maybe it's just that it embodies all that is right with the world: people sharing time together, laughing, cheering and just enjoying life, for life’s sake.                               

             After all, it’s been called “America’s favorite pastime".

In celebration of another excellent Astros season, I’d like to share with you some family history. Just a hint to what the following linked article covers, a quote in regards to the beginning and future of baseball in Houston about My Uncle, "Now we just need to make sure we remember the man who made it all possible. His name was Allen Russell and, as far as I’m concerned, he’s also the real father of major league baseball in Houston." For many years until ownership changes, outstanding Astros players were bestowed the Allen Russell Distinguished Achievement Award. Enjoy the article!
