Here we are less than a week away from the end of spring training and our great journey to the destination we will call home for a period of time. You would think we would know where that drive is going to take us by now, but we do not. Yes, you read that right, we still have no clue what team we are going to start the year with. It doesn’t shock me in the least bit, as we are very used to being told everything at the last minute when it comes to baseball. But it is quite frustrating when you are trying to find a place to live and people to live with! Currently Addison is playing spring training games with the AAA team, Scranton-Wilkes Barre Yankees (although this year they are nicknamed the Empire State Yankees because their home field is undergoing a complete renovation making the team practically homeless, left to bum off all the other teams in the North East). Just because he is on this roster now still does not give us any indication on which way the wind may blow us. He still has about a 50% chance of ending up with the AA team, the Trenton Thunder. All of this is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the unknowns in this lifestyle. Most plans we make, if we can even make them, have to be made at the very last minute. Planning ahead is a phrase not found in a baseball family’s vocabulary. It does make it difficult, no doubt about that, but it is also extremely liberating. Not many people actually get the opportunity live a life so unsteady, unreliable, unexpected, and exciting. I consider us very fortunate. We get to let go of everything and just have faith in what the future may hold for us.
