Joshua Bardsley 2014

Knowing what a baseball nut I am, people frequently ask me who my all time favorite player is. My answer for the last seven years has been my son Joshua. Joshua just completed his second season on the Kent Island High School Baseball Team. He also just went on the first ten days of the Potter Baseball Tour again. Last season he went on the entire 25 day Potter Tour, and played in the minor league stadiums for the Bowie Baysox, Frederick Keys, and the York Revolution. He also got to play in PNC Park, home of the MLB Pittsburgh Pirates. He has been splitting time between catching, and playing the outfield.

Brian was one of my two best friends in high school. He, Kenny and I, went to Yorktown High School in Arlington Va.
Brian, or Duke as his family called him, and I wrestled together. He also played football. I took this side line picture in 1983. It was my senior year and Duke"s junior year.
