So as you may know, I am a avid follower of Kap Lifestyle Gabe Kapler’s blog about health and fitness. In a resent post, he discussed the benefits of getting rid of clutter. Check it out here:http://kaplifestyle.com/2015/03/organization-and-clutter

well I decided to clean out all my clutter which was surprisingly easy and mostly paper. I dug around my closet and found this box, and it was full of my baseball stuff. It was like a time capsule of all the baseball stuff I had collected. Thanks Gabe Kapler, if I hadn’t uncluttered I would have never found all these wonderful things.

The items include. a signed banner, a program from a regular game in 2001 and a program from the 1999 division series. and the 2001 year book. a signed Kapler baseball, (its faded its 13 yrs old) dirt from the warning track from The Ballpark in Arlington. a team photo of the 1992 Rangers. We are going to go over all this stuff later but today here are some pictures from  the 2001 yearbook

What a wonderful discovery to find another signed item of Frank Catalanotto. I didn’t remember either my signed Kapler ball, I don’t know if it can been seen on film but its there just really faded and even though it wasn’t exposed to light it still fades away. so tip use a Sharpie. Today was like finding money, it was wonderful to remember when I got the book and when I saw these guys play ball.

Twitter and baseball so much fun

The other day I was on Twitter and the Blue Jays did a retweet.

 

I thought “Hey! its Frank, I could write a whole other post about the Frank Catalanotto Fnd, but when I started following it, I then saw Frank’s official Twitter account. and started following that too.

I was very excited to find Frank, as he is one of my favorite former Rangers and all around nice guy.  so I just put out there.

Do you know who favorited it?  Pudge and Frank! This makes me so happy and gets me excited to work more on this blog, so in the coming months I am going to dare to ask for interviews and I am going to be more vocal on my opinions on baseball.  Be patient with me as I am still recovering from knee surgery. The best is yet to come.
