    Can't wait to see you play at the AAA level in Rochester. No disrespect to the Twins, but there have been some rather error-prone people playing the middle infielder positions in recent years. The Wings could use a talented and gutsy leader out there for once. Hope you make it!

A Game of Stories

by AJPettersen on 03-31-2014 at 07:54 PM
Seth recently wrote about his baseball background, so in the same spirit, I wanted to share a story of my own.

We headed over to the field for some groundballs. Three young men trotted out after us, donning fresh spikes and jerseys without names on the back. When they joined me at SS, I thought it a good chance to welcome the new guys and practice some Spanish, so I struck up a conversation. We introduced ourselves and I learned they were from the Dominican Republic. Out of a hunch,

The Old Man and the Wall

by AJPettersen on 03-25-2014 at 05:38 PM
He was there again this morning. In khaki shorts, an old t-shirt and a ball cap, he was unassuming. He easily could have been missed, but I noted his presence in the back of my mind. The first time I saw him, I couldn't figure out the meaning. He wound up and fired again and again. His easy left handed arm action suggesting he had done this many times before. The big wall in the center of the complex was his catcher, returning each throw on a roll so he could reload and unfurl another. Every pitch

An Unexpected Twist

by AJPettersen on 03-18-2014 at 08:26 PM
I awake with sore hands and forearms, worry and stress cause me to clench my fists while I sleep-an outward manifestation of an inward feeling. My body tenses up in a reaction to the stresses of life. The only way I am able to defend against my stress reaction is through letting go, through surrendering. The truth is-open hands are always better than clenched fists.

I cut through the Florida morning fog on the way to the complex and see the sun rising over empty fields. I walk into

Learning From My New Friends

by AJPettersen on 03-02-2014 at 05:56 PM
I walked outside to grab the mail and a little girl came whizzing by on a bike. She stopped when she saw me. I knelt down and introduced myself, "I'm AJ," I shook her hand. "Hi, I'm Olivia," she responded. She told me she was 6 years old, later I met her twin 4 year old siblings, Alexis and Ray. They were all so full of life.

I saw them the next day, and the next. Pretty soon they were ringing the doorbell everyday to ask if I could come out and play. Now, each day

Transitioning from Recovery to Rehabilitation

by AJPettersen on 10-31-2013 at 09:06 PM
Happy Halloween to all, I hope you enjoyed the costumes and loads of candy. In keeping with the post surgery articles, I'll give an update on what's going on. I got my cast off a couple of days ago at the Mayo Clinic, here's how it went.

The drive down to Rochester felt much faster this time because I was shedding a cast rather than getting one put on. The inability to scratch itches and straighten my elbow had gotten old.

I went to the same unit as last time and met my
