A moment of a lifetime by Judson Laipply

There are times in our lives when we are able to complete a lifelong dream. A moment that we strive for, wish for, work for, pray for, or hope for that when it takes place the sense of excitement is beyond words. some our goals that are within our own power to achieve while others require a bit more star alignment. I recently was able to do something that I had dreamed about for years and will never forget.  Baseball has always been a part of my life from the days of Tee-ball and travel league to College and the adult wood bat team I play on today. Living in Ohio I grew up an Indians fan and am still to this day regardless of the level of winning or some of the heartache that comes with them. So to be able to throw out an opening pitch has been on my list of things to do in life for as long as I have had a list (it was right after “Be on SNL”.

On June 17th I am happy and proud to say that I was able to mark that off my list.

Of course, you can’t see the ball cause I am just throwing it so fast the camera could not pick it up. :-) It was a strike so I am happy about that. So no matter what your dreams or goals are just keep plugging away and you never know when they might happen.

  1. I opened a link sent by a friend, and moments letter was rejoicing – seeing your dance videos, reading your blog was like slicing into the perfect mango – not stringy, not mushy or overripe – simply perfection, sweet, juicy and satisfying – and leaving a HUGE grin on my face and a lingering smile in my soul. THANK YOU for begin you, Judson.

  2. You are so funny yet inspirational at the same time. I’d never heard of your Evolution of Dance until this evening when a Facebook friend posted it.

    I followed the links over to here and some excellent reading as well. I’m glad you got to fulfil one of your dreams here with the baseball.

    Continued success to you.
