Kenny on the Mound

Last night, we hurried over to Fifth Third Ballpark to see Kenny Rogers (no, not the singer, silly!) pitch for the Whitecaps. "Wait a minute," you ask. "He doesn't play for the West Michigan Whitecaps!" Yes, our little sleepy town had a big star pass through while rehabbing for the beloved Detroit Tigers. It was a neat experience and a bit unfitting to see him wearing a Whitecaps jersey, but we needed to see him throw that pitch we have longed to see for 3 months. He pitched 5 innings, started out a bit rough, but overall he threw some good pitches. He seemed overtly frustrated with himself while on the practice mound, but he still had that shimmer in his eye that we know he still carries.

Here are some pictures from our 'ballpark Friday night':

Seeing these photos are like seeing my dad cry for the first time. He just doesn't belong... I guess Kenny Rogers is human too. Here's hoping he's throwing well and relaxing with himself soon!
