Last night, the family went to see this man play the Sandlot Baseball All-Star Showcase at a real stadium:
We kind of had to—he’s ours.
Obviously: Who else but a Wesson would play catcher in an old fencing mask?
Have to say, though, he looks good in uniform:
Pretty darn good:
It was a good game, even though the (blue) Turtles were trounced by the (orange) Crushers and Janie ate a blue-iced cupcake that showered everything within a two-foot radius with teal speckles and a very sleepy Sunny stuck herself to my shirt by her chocolate frosting goatee.
The entry fee for the game was canned goods for a local food bank and I heard that they collected over eight hundred pounds-worth from the family and friends who came out to watch them play and eat hotdogs and oddly-colored desserts and smush bugs and dance to the music and cheer on the players* and fall asleep on their Mommies until it was time to go home.
We had a great time.
You done good, honey—we’re proud of you!

Who is R.? Is this Sunny? Have I missed something?
Whoops, yeah, Sunny is a nickname. I fixed it!
That just sounds like a wonderful way to spend an evening.
It was—even the bugs had a sort of charm, before we slapped them down.
I love a man who can wear a mask.
Good job, Wesson family!
Oddly enough, so do I. 😀
Thanks—turns out blue icing does come out of white fabric. Chocolate, however . . .
Awesome. Simply awesome. 🙂
Yeah. Think I’ll keep him. 🙂
“stuck herself to my shirt by her chocolate frosting goatee”, oh you have to save this line and use it somewhere. Clear, funny, perfect.
And any man that would use a fencing mask? Priceless.
Love this whole post.
I won’t have to write that line down, Lyra—I’ll remember it every time I see that shirt! 😀
And I have to agree about the fencing mask!
I’ve been to that baseball stadium! I have a deep love for the sport, and am extremely jealous that you got to watch your man play there!
It’s a nice little stadium, Odie—the renovations were totally worth it.
It’s such a rush seeing the guys on the field—my husband says it’s even more of a rush to be on it!
What a great way to do a food drive! You know me, I love baseball. Congratulations to your husband for playing with style.
I’ll pass it along, Lisa! 🙂
