We’re Going to Kentucky!- 2017 Kentucky Crusade Preview

This Thursday, two of my Illinois teammates and I will be traveling to Lexington, Kentucky to participate in “The Land of Tomorrow” Crusade to Eastern Kentucky. This isn’t a typical Crusade visit for me since the three of us will only be participating in the last three days of the Crusade, but we have the opportunity to help the New Jersey team with some manpower late in the trip!

2017 Lake Erie Crusade- Day 5

(Note:  Written on 7/16/17 and published on 7/24/17) For whatever reason, day five of the trip is always the earliest.  We have to be awake earlier than normal.  We have to run down our uniforms from the laundry guy early.  We have to make sure we are not only packed for the day but that we are packed for the trip home. There is a tension between loving what we…

2017 Lake Erie Crusade- Day 4

(Note: Written on 7/15/17 and posted on 7/24/17) Day 4 of a Saints Crusade is always tough but it is so important that we show up to each prison as if we made the entire trip just for them.  I had something give out in my elbow/shoulder/bicep yesterday while making a throw from the outfield.  Throwing, hitting, and even brushing my teeth this morning was quite painful.  If you go…

2017 Lake Erie Crusade- Prolouge

(Written on 7/13/17) I love jury duty. I know most people loathe it and are frustrated by anything involving the government but it is one of my favorite things to do. I have only been summoned twice and I have never been picked for a jury but I still love it. It is basically a one week study hall where I can read in peace, write with no distractions, and…
