Today’s Thought Of The Day…
From Yankees Game 5 starting pitcher Ivan Nova (via Erik Boland from Newsday).
If you want to play in the big leagues, you have to have confidence in yourself.
This is echoed by so many major league players. Confidence is key because self-doubt can be so damage as you face elite competition. You are talented, you do belong, you can succeed. Best of luck to Ivan tonight.

Each year, I’ve tried to get my oldest son down to Florida to experience spring training. This year I bring my youngest with us as well. We’re going to catch two games and hopefully a few training sessions.
This year I also expose him to a tradition my son and started 3 years back. Each year when we purchase our tickets, we try to buy 2 or 4 additional tickets that we donate to the Big Brothers Big Sisters of Tampa. We feel that if we’re able to enjoy a game or two, someone a bit less fortunate should as well.
So, we are trying to spread the word and have more folks donate some tickets if they are able to. In the past, Chad Jennings, of Lohud.com, was nice enough to help spread the word and we had a few folks donate. Thanks Chad!
I urge you to consider donating. The link to the Yanks spring training tickets is here. Also the Spring Training Online site is a great one for other teams if you decide to donate.
If you decide to donate, please let me know and I can help get you in contact with the right folks. You can reach me on Twitter at @MikeLawrenceNJ or email me at mike (at) classiccards.com.
Thanks for considering to lend a hand.
Well, that was uneventful. After all the hype surrounding whether the Tigers could rally down 3 games to none, the Giants put them away quickly. What do you think?
