“An Endless Game Of Repeated Summers”

Last month I posted a video about one of the great father-son duos at Phantasy Camp, Rocky and Chris Wright.

Several days ago, Chris contacted me and sent along a couple of his own videos. He was very gracious to let me share them on this website.

The first was a segment from “Behind The Pinstripes” back in April, hosted by Scott Palmer, public affairs director for the Phillies, and one of the many Phantasy Camp gurus. The show did a piece on the Wright’s Camp experience together in Clearwater last January.

The other was a very nice photo compilation of both he and his father (complete with a soundtrack supplied by a band who is fronted by one of my favorite personalities in rock).

Needless to say, Chris’s videos and his wonderful messages were quite timely…

This week marks the second anniversary of my dad’s passing (as well as the 21st for my mother).

“…for baseball is continuous, like nothing else among American things, an endless game of repeated summers, joining the long generations of all fathers and all sons.”
