Rudy, Rudy, Rudy . . . Deadball, Deadball, Deadball

Last Saturday night (September 1st) I had the opportunity to meet a true cultural icon – Daniel “Rudy” Ruettiger. As the inspiration for the 1993 film Rudy, Mr. Ruettiger is someone who transcends the world of sports and entertainment. Mr. Ruettiger was at the Frederick Keys game signing autographs on the concourse. Turns out his nephew, John Ruettiger, plays outfield for the Frederick Keys, a minor league affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles.

I was there, too, selling and signing copies of my book Deadball.  It was pleasure talking with Rudy. I hope he enjoys the story of Byron Bennett. I can hear the chants now “Byron, Byron, Byron.”

And now for a word about great places to work. The Frederick Keys were kind enough to put me on the concourse along the first base side of the stadium, giving me a “Grade A” view of the field (that’s a pun, but I’ll spare you the explanation).

A Room With A View

Unfortunately, once the game was over I had to leave. If only I could have that view from my desk every day!

Frederick Keys, Rudy and Me, This Saturday!

For those of you looking for a way to spend the last official weekend of summer watching baseball, come out to the Frederick Keys on Saturday September 1st. Gates open at 5 pm.

I will be there selling and signing copies of my book Deadball, A Metaphysical Baseball Novel.

Also there signing autographs at Harry Grove Stadium will be Daniel Eugene Ruettiger – the inspiration behind the movie “Rudy.”

Should be a good night for baseball as the Keys are in the hunt for a playoff spot. The Keys are a minor league affiliate of the Baltimore Orioles.
