Mark Your Mondays v1.6: The Guest Host

As I mentioned in last week’s entry, my mom, dad, and sister Kelly came to visit me for this Easter weekend (my brother Michael spent Easter in Tampa and my brother Matt was at school in Boston). We thought it might be interesting for them to write this entry from their perspective, so here goes.

“We enjoyed getting to see Mark here in Tucson during his rehabbing time.  As many of you fellow parents out there have experienced (or will) when you support your son’s quest for his dream, tons of memories created during the past 18 years have resurfaced. 

“From the time Mark was 4 years old in tee-ball, when he hit into a triple play in his first at-bat and came off the field smiling, we could see how much he enjoyed playing the game.  Through Little League tournaments, high school playoff games, showcase events all over the country, travel team tournaments as far as Australia, Team USA trials, the College World Series, summers during college spent in Japan, Taiwan, and the Dominican Republic with the National Team, the draft, and finally his first professional season, we were there as much as we could be in order to celebrate his successes as well as those necessary “bumps” in the road. 

With this, we logged many miles, saw most of the country (and many hotels), and shared many great family moments together.  After all, that’s what it’s really all about- family.  This weekend, we saw a lot of Tucson, went up to the D-backs game, saw some of Phoenix on Sunday, enjoyed the nice weather, and of course, ate way too much.  We hope everyone enjoyed the holiday weekend as much as we did.”

 Remember, I’ll be back next Monday with an update from Rehab.  Have a good week.
