This morning I flew back from Milwaukee, WI after spending a couple of great days there with some good friends.
I arrived early enough on Tuesday evening to catch most of the Brewers/Rockies ballgame and then visited with Gabe & Kelly Gross briefly after the game.
On Wednesday morning I had breakfast with Wayne Beilgard, the Baseball Chapel leader for the Milwaukee Brewers. In addition to his responsibilities with the ballclub, Wayne stays in touch with the other 29 major league chapel leaders, encouraging them and providing liaison between them and the President, Vince Nauss. It was great to spend time with "Wayno" as he calls himself.
Gabe & Kelly invited me for lunch at The Original Pancake House in Brookfield, WI. What a meal! I'll post a photo of them outside the restaurant as soon as I get it formatted properly.
Miller Park, the Brewers' ballpark is a great stadium (see photos). It has a retractible roof...a good thing because it poured rain last night.
Gabe asked if I could stay with the team longer because he started both games in left field and the Brew Crew beat Colorado in both of those contests. I know that my presence didn't mean a thing but...
Please pray for Corey Koskie, another former Blue Jay now playing with the Brewers, as he makes his slow recovery from a concussion suffered earlier in the season. Thanks!
