“So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.
When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.
When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home.”
THIS HAS BEEN IN THE DUGOUT FOR WASHINGTON’S ENTIRE 2012 SEASON
Sorry for the break in the blog, but after a strong performance last Saturday, we have secured the #3 seed for the tournament in Baltimore this weekend hosted by Johns Hopkins. Senior Ace Shane Mattingly takes the hill for the Shoremen against Haverford this Friday. The first game will be in Philly Friday at Haverford and Saturday it goes to Hopkins, hope everyone can make it!
The Shoremen concluded Sunday with a 3-1 week. Each game was close and Washington rallied late to sweep the weekday series with McDaniel thanks to a pair of quality starts and some timely hitting. Scott Matthews had a big week for the Shoremen that included a grand slam on Friday. Due to rain, the Saturday game was moved back a day and despite a late rally in game one, the two teams split. Come out to Athey Park tomorrow for a big game versus Swarthmore with Senior RHP Shane Mattingly on the mound.
