The Power in Those Words……

Good Morning…..

I want to thank all of you who took the time to reach out in response to yesterday’s story about my Dad.  I received emails, calls and texts. Dad’s energy literally spread yesterday from coast to coast; serving as a reminder to us all that life is lived in moments and it truly is about the energy we emit, the energy we leave and the circle of energy in which we choose to run.

A friend reached out to tell me of her Mom’s passing last December. She lives in Florida, her sister lives in Italy and Mom was in New Jersey. They simultaneously arrived in the hospital parking lot. Mom passed within an hour after they had arrived, settled in and told her it was OK and it was time for her to go and “be with Dad”. The power in those words.

Another called on his way home from a day of little league baseball All Stars. A day spent with his Dad and his son. “I was reading it and thought “how blessed are we?” A good man who knows it’s all in the moments. His all star team lived to fight another day!

Then there came an email from a long lost cousin and next week we will have lunch in Boston. We have not seen each other in almost 50 years. Dad still at work.

As for yesterday’s 18th hole at the Lake Venice Golf Club…..

I hit three balls from the tee 167 yards away. The six iron was my club of choice for this par 3 closing hole….I registered a 3 and a pair of 4’s……Not bad.

The toast….”To the Greatest Man I’ve ever known.”

About fenwaypark100

Hello and welcome, my name is Raymond Sinibaldi. An educator for more than two decades, a baseball fan for nearly 60 years, I have authored four books about baseball and her glorious history; with a fifth on the way in late spring of 2015; the first, The Babe in Red Stockings which was co-authored with Kerry Keene and David Hickey. It is a chronicle of Babe's days with the Red Sox. We also penned a screenplay about Babe's Red Sox days so if any of you are Hollywood inclined or would like to represent us in forwarding that effort feel free to contact me through my email. In 2012 we three amigos published Images of Fenway Park in honor of the 100th birthday of Fenway Park. That led to the creation of this blog. The following year, 2013 came my first solo venture, Spring Training in Bradenton and Sarasota. This is a pictorial history of spring training in those two Florida cities. The spring of 2014 brought forth the 1967 Red Sox, The Impossible Dream Season. The title speaks for itself and it also is a pictorial history. Many of the photos in this book were never published before. The spring of 2015 will bring 1975 Red Sox, American League Champions. Another pictorial effort, this will be about the Red Sox championship season of 1975 and the World Series that restored baseball in America. I was fortunate enough to consult with sculptor Franc Talarico on the “Jimmy Fund” statue of Ted Williams which stands outside both Fenway Park and Jet Blue Park Fenway South, in Fort Myers Florida. That story is contained in the near 300 posts which are contained herein. This blog has been dormant for awhile but 2015 will bring it back to life so jump on board, pass the word and feel free to contact me about anything you read or ideas you may have for a topic. Thanks for stopping by, poke around and enjoy. Autographed copies of all my books are available here, simply click on Raymond Sinibaldi and email me.
