Happy Opening Day! This will be the first in 4 years that I am not covering a baseball game from the field or a studio and it’s a little bittersweet.
I’ve made the decision to make Mommyhood my top priority and take a step back from the demands of a career in sports this season. My husband John and I welcomed our little slugger, James Joseph Fitzpatrick, into the world on February 5th and he’s been such a blessing in our lives!
I write this post watching the Braves host the Nationals thinking of all the amazing experiences and opportunities I was lucky enough to have in the past covering these two teams. It’s learning about the game and the gifted athletes that devote their lives to it that I will miss the most, along with the wonderful relationships I have built with the people I’ve worked with.
I’m also watching this game while taking notes on the matchup because I won’t be stepping away completely! As a fill-in host, I’ll be jumping in the Braves Live chair from time to time throughout the season…so catch me on the pregame show! 🙂
