The picture above is of my nephew Jay Flaa and I when he came here a few years back pitching for North Dakota State when they came to Greeley to play UNC. I am so proud of my nephew. He went on from NDSU to be drafted by the Baltimore Orioles. He has now been with the organization for a few years and has started to get himself noticed.

Jay was just moved up the Orioles AA team the Bowie Baysox. He will be moving up a step on the ladder to the big leagues. He is pitching strong this spring and looks to be a beast on the mound this year. He is a relief pitcher and I think he will get his chance someday soon with the big boys. My whole family and my whole home town are so excited to continue to follow this dream. Go Jay! I am now a huge Baysox fan.
