THIS IS WHERE IT ALL STARTED…
Ok, Camille talking now… From the moment I met David, baseball was a part of our lives. When I graduated from college and shortly after we got married, I decided to stop working in favor of traveling with him while he pursued this crazy dream of becoming a major league baseball player. At that time – 2012 – I started documenting our adventures in baseball together because my passion has always been writing, and I needed a way to release all the craziness that accompanied our lives. David made his MLB debut in 2013 with the New York Yankees, the same year that we welcomed our first baby. Since then, we had another baby boy, and David retired from playing. Now a coach for the New York Yankees, our adventures in baseball do not appear to be slowing down, in fact, I would say we are approaching the adolescent years. Because of this, I decided to start documenting it from a whole new perspective.

I have always considered myself a dreamer. I’m the kind of person that can very easily get lost in the clouds where dreams lie and, at times, are never realized. The dreams that I have are always big, often unimaginable to others. Perhaps my perspective on life is skewed, but I have always believed that …Read More
I remember being in a similar situation a year ago, prior to having spent a full baseball season with David and even before knowing what it would be like to travel with our furry babies. For many reasons, however, I stand today unsure of what to do about our four-legged children this coming season. Last …Read More

I can’t even begin to tell you how fast the off-season came and went. In a week’s time, David and I will be moving to Tampa to report for Spring Training. Much to my relief, we were able to find a fully furnished apartment to lay down our roots for a whopping 2.5 months prior …Read More
