I just played in a 2-day golf tournament, today and yesterday, on the eastern shore of Maryland with, the ever unassuming, Harold Baines. The great hitting player of the 80s' and 90s'(with the Chicago White Sox, Baltimore Orioles, Texas Rangers, Oakland Athletics, and Cleveland Indians). And the current 1st base coach of the Chicago White Sox.

Just a great guy, who hasn't forgotten where he came from (St.Michaels, Maryland). I had a really fun time running around in the golf cart for 2 days with him. Trying to keep my composure, have fun and trying to play decent golf at the same time.

Well, I guess, 2 outta 3 ain't bad. Ughh...I played horribly, though, on Saturday, it was just an awful day. 30+ mph winds, with heavy-steady rain for most of the back nine holes. Temps in the mid 50s'. Tough day!

But, we made the best of that 5 1/2 hour round. Though NOT in our scores. :-( Today was a complete opposite of yesterday. Beautiful blue skies. 65 degrees. Almost no wind to speak of. Much better round for all!

Anyway, it was just a great experience playing two days of golf with a SUPER nice, well-grounded guy... # 3 Harold Baines.

Thanks Harold! Hope we can tee it up again sometime. ;-)
University of Maryland, Eastern Shore if my Baltimore Orioles history serves me. Great player.
