May 7, 2016 – Under the Radar Hitters of the Day (I’m Possible)

First, I want to say Happy Mother’s Day to all of the mothers in my life. I couldn’t do what  I do without you. Secondly, happy birthday to my mother-in-law Kathy. And thirdly, one of the things my late mother used to tell me was how things are only impossible if you believe them to be.

“You can do anything you want,” she’d say. “You just have to be modest, work hard and don’t believe you have limits.”

Last night, my mother’s lesson was re-enforced.

We’ve all had those “I remember where I was” moments in our lives. Well, last night added another to my list, as the impossible happened…Bartolo Colon hits his first career home run.
