Well, the Toronto Blue Jays opened their 30th season on a winning note, beating the visiting Minnesota Twins 6-3. Bengie Molina (pictured) picked up his first home run as a Blue Jay.
Although I was glad to see the Jays get the win, it was a bittersweet day for the Big Fish. This is the first Opening Day in the Jays' history that I haven't been a part of the team.
Many of you know that I resigned as the Baseball Chapel leader on February 1st after serving for 29 enjoyable years. This Thursday I'll take my successor, Nigel Wheeler, on a tour of Rogers Center to introduce him to the security guards, ushers, team personnel, etc. so that his first Sunday (this Sunday) as the new chapel leader will run as smoothly as possible.
As I pass the torch to my friend Nigel I pray that God will use him mightily and that there will be an excellent response this season by the Blue Jays to the Baseball Chapel ministry.
Go Jays Go! Have a profitable, spiritually productive season, Nigel!
