Just giving you guys a quick update on how things are going in the AFL. So far the Scorpions are 7-15, not exactly the record we were hoping for but I definitely feel like we are a better team then our record shows. We have an extremely talented team down here and have played well in all facets of the game at times, just not necessarily all at once. Oh well, all we can do is keep playing hard and working hard, and hopefully things will turn around. We have a lot of guys playing really good baseball and it is pretty fun to see. For me personally, I have spent some time working on my swing, which is something I felt I needed to do, and I’m pretty happy with the strides I have made so far. I definitely think this has been a really good environment to get a lot of work done on the days your not playing, while also getting game reps to get some feedback on your progress. Thats really all I got on the baseball side of things, but if anyone has any questions about anything baseball related in the AFL, please feel free to ask.
One of my friends suggested that I should talk about my top three favorite restaurants in Scottsdale, so I figured I would give that a shot. Going out to dinner is one of my favorite things to do outside the baseball field, so professional baseball was a pretty good fit for me, where most of your meals are not home cooked. My favorite restaurant here so far has been Oreganos. Normally sushi is my favorite type of food to eat when I go out for dinner but out here Oreganos takes the cake. Not necessarily the healthiest choice, so I do not go there all the time but every once in a while it is incredible. My next choice would be Sapporo. They have phenomenal sushi there and most of my friends order hibachi, so I get to watch the chefs mess around on the grill while cooking their food. Finally, my third favorite would be Kona Grill, where I also order sushi. Maybe it is the food, or maybe the awesome mall that Kona Grill is in, but I really enjoy that whole experience as well. If anyone has suggestions on good places to eat, please let me know. Thats all I got for now but please give me some feedback on what you want to hear!
