As I sat by the third base dugout at Leinwand park a few weeks back, I was overwhelmed with emotion as I realized that I was watching the last few pitches of my youngest son’s illustrious baseball career.
My family has spent the last 12 springs cheering our three sons from coach-pitch through majors — and now, it’s over. Hard for us to believe.
From the depths of our hearts, the McGill family would like to say “Thanks for the memories” to all those who make Dixie Youth Baseball such a wonderful experience for families all across Bladen County. Now that these years are behind us, we realize just how special they were and we appreciate the impact of the youth baseball league here in our community.
I was recently reminded that it won’t be long before we’ll be cheering for our grandkids in the same bleachers we have occupied for the past dozen years. While I’m not quite ready for that season of life, I am ready for another season of baseball.
So to the staff, coaches, volunteers and all the players — thank you for all the memories — those we have enjoyed and those still to come.
May God bless you all.
Cameron & Tiffany McGill
