The Ole Ball Game

~ My Site Build It! Story ~

A teacher and baseball coach for 31 years, I retired on 2003 to explore some new adventures in life.

My brother-in-law is a lobster fisherman, living on an island off the coast of Maine. On an earlier vacation visit, while still gainfully employed, we had an opportunity to get a leisurely induction into the world of a lobster fisherman. A fun and exciting day, to see something you had never seen before, in a land and environment so far removed from the desert my wife and I grew up and live in.

Learning of my impending retirement plans, Bill suggested I could come to Maine and serve as his "Sternman", for the summer of 2003. My wife and I discussed it and we decided I would take him up on the offer, and the plan was hatched.

Let The Adventure Begin

Armed with enthusiasm; but little else to prepare me for the world of the lobster, I hopped aboard a plane headed for the state of Maine. Along with my luggage, I carried with me a realistic apprehension ( I had been on the ocean once in my life, a few hours on a boat in Florida, resulting in a wish to die rather than continue with the sea sickness that had engulfed my entire being.)
