- Geof a.k.a. Central Valley Fan writes in with a fundraising update:
Quick update, up till now I have raised almost $100. I have till the end of march to raise $3,000, so I’m starting to sweat. Then today, they dropped the gauntlet hard!
Every game I go to, I always think, man I wish it was me as a kid getting to run out there and get an autograph from a Dodger, or now, man I can’t wait to have a kid to get to do that! But here it is, Chocolate in my Peanut Butter! If I can get $1,000 raised starting Wednesday, I get to do that! So I need my fellow Sons' help! I’m hitting up everyone I know, to hold on, but then donate starting Wednesday.
To prepare, I ran a 2-mile race this last weekend and placed 6th in my age group of 30-34.
Thanks for your help and I promise if I get to do this, I will videotape it and share it with everyone on here!

- It's Scorekeeping Week at Pitchers & Poets! While I personally am too easily distracted to keep score for an entire game, I appreciated this sentiment from Eric:
Buried in the subconscious of the every amateur scorekeeper is the fantasy that someday, years into the future, a researcher will stumble across that mustard-stained scorecard from a Sunday afternoon in Arlington, and use it to construct the final, Rosebud-like paragraph of said scorekeeper’s biography.
And if you're put off by the the tools of traditional scorekeeping, P&P has an interview with someone who's changing all that. If Moleskine Made a Scorebook: The Bethany Heck Interview
