I Am Thankful For... (Ethan Semendinger)

First off, I am thankful for being a Yankees fan. To be a part of a group of likeminded individuals who all support the most successful franchise in all of sports is a wonderful thing. I've met amazing people through the bonds of baseball and I am thankful for that every day.

Secondly, I am thankful for my parents and family. Through their support in my athletic endeavors they allowed me to pursue other opportunities and encouraged me to find baseball again. Being able to play after many years off is a wonderful thing. And the most wonderful of that is being able to share the field with my Dad.

Third, I am thankful for the opportunity to write on this blog for all of you. The fact that I have an audience to share my ideas, my feelings, and my interests will all of you is something that I am very proud and honored to have. I strive to put out the best content I can for you. If it was my own thoughts, they would be a jumbled mess. Because of you all, I strive to only put out the best work.

Fourth, a shout-out to my favorite Yankees: Hideki Matsui, Ichiro Suzuki, Kyle Higashioka, DJ LeMahieu, David Robertson, Orlando Hernandez, and many many others. Thank you for being the athletes who shined above and did great things.

And finally, thank you to God. For he has provided me everything I could have ever asked for.

Thank you.

Scattering the Ashes.jpeg

The Least Among Them.png

"This charming and meticulously researched book will remind you of baseball’s power to change and enrich lives far beyond the diamond."

—Jonathan Eig, New York Times best-selling author of Luckiest Man, Opening Day, and Ali: A Life

From Compton to the Bronx.jpg

"A young man from Compton rises to the highest levels of baseball greatness.

Considered one of the classiest baseball players ever, this is Roy White's story, but it's also the story of a unique period in baseball history when the Yankees fell from grace and regained glory and the country dealt with societal changes in many ways."
