The Flying Dutchman's 3000th

On this date 100 years ago, Honus Wagner got his 3,000th hit.

There is some debate on when his 3,000th hit officially took place, but this is the most common date recognized.

A Career Switch is in the Works

Hello all! Hope everyone has been doing well!  I realize that I haven't posted for a while and I apologize for that, but I've been so swamped with everything that cards and baseball in general has been put on the back burner.  The only baseball I have watched in the past two months or so has been the three Pirates' games I went to.  The school is year is over.  Both of the volleyball seasons have come to an end as well.  With both of those being in the books, I will have a lot more free time...but only for the next 2-3 weeks.

Instead of having all summer off and simply working camps like I was expecting.  I have decided to switch careers.  I enjoy teaching, coaching, and working with student athletes, but there are simply no jobs right now.  I have an opportunity to pursue a new career and I'm rolling the dice and going for it.  The earning potential for this new job is sky high, but that is not what's most important to me.  I will still have an opportunity to help people and families as well as having more control over my schedule.

Needless to say, I am WAY behind on posts from my two COMC orders (I still never finished my February posts), a ton of eBay orders, and a few Twitter trades.  I hope to get a ton of posts done in the next two weeks as well as some golf and relaxation.
