A Baseball Obituary: Diamond Prospects was never built to serve as a personal outlet for free speech, but tonight I felt the need to give an old baseball fan his due. The older I get, the more I appreciate family. For those of you who have an elder someone in your past, you may just be able to see a glimpse of your own life in this most important ‘recap’ that I’ve ever written...If you have a grandparent you love or respect, click here.

Unfortunately I know that while that is most often the case, things happen because a parent is just that, a parent. Fore more, click here.
