Last night CASA of the Coastal Bend had it’s annual Night at the Hooks. I was scheduled to throw out the first pitch, but last minute we ended up having a little switcheroo due to some “time constraints,” whereby a Casa volunteer John Ruyle ended up doing the honors of the first pitch. I was right behind him the entire time capturing with a Go Pro attached to my head. It was an honor to share the field with an amazing CASA and Al Cantu – a 6 Tour Veteran of Vietnam, who threw out the first, first pitch. Thank you to the Corpus Christi Hooks as well as the Corpus Christi community for supporting CASA of the Coastal Bend.
From an earlier post:
I’m finally getting back in the swing of blogging more regularly (pun intended), and just in time to announce that I’ve been chosen by CASA of the Coastal Bend to throw out the first pitch at CASA’s Night at the Hooks this upcoming Tuesday night. The Corpus Christi Hooks game will be against the San Antonio Missions. I haven’t thrown a baseball in at least 20 years. That’s a scary but true fact.
On a serious note, one of the things that I always try to impart to others as advice is that in your life endeavors you should pursue something that coincides two important aspects: talent and passion. Once you discover those two things try to find a vocation (job) that incorporates both aspects, and follow that with your whole heart. At the very least I encourage you to make it your avocation (hobby) and partner with your local government, community, or non-profits and organizations for the betterment of society. In that instance, both sides win. I set out on my photography journey reaching out to many different non-profits, some of which I still play vital roles with, CASA being one of them. Casa is a wonderful organization with a tremendous goal: speak up for children when they need it most. Learn more about CASA by clicking here.
