Favorite Butler Baseball Memory
There are so many to choose from! Winning the Horizon League Tourney in 2000 in Dayton, Ohio takes the cake. All around Butler baseball memories – we had such a close-knit team. That was unbelievable. The road trips that kept us together as a team – Jacksonville, Fla., and Akron, Ohio, to name a few.  All in all, the family atmosphere that we had around the teams when I was there is something I will never forget.

My wife, Kris, and I have a daughter named Callie and a son named Tyson. Callie turns 4 in January 2012 and Tyson is 1 and a half. Tyson is working on his swing a lot! Funny story: I have never seen Tyson so happy as when I gave him his first baseball bat on his first birthday. I was very proud. Now he swings it all of the time. We just have to make sure we keep him away from his sister when he is swinging his bat. I am limiting his throwing so that he preserves his shoulder and doesn’t need surgeries like his dad did. Kris and I are expecting our third child at the end of June.
