This past season was the first season in over fifteen years that I have not had Coach Meyer to bounce ideas off and ask questions. He could say more in two lines of typing on a text than anyone I know. He would always help me and always had time for a question.
There were many times this past season that I wanted to talk to him and ask him about certain things, but I could not. We dedicated our season to Coach Meyer and played in his honor. I think above everything our team played sound, solid, and simple, and were a great testimony to what Coach Meyer has given this game.
I will continue to miss coach the rest of my life, and I one day hope that when my time is over here that I will sit with Jesus in a beautiful ball park in Heaven and watch Coach Meyer go 9 innings on the mound. Maybe afterward Coach and I can sit and talk and I will tell him about our teams playing the “Meyer Way.”
