If any of you TX folks are college baseball fans - and have time or inclination - consider supporting this worthy cause:

Shriners Hospitals for Children College Classic. March 3-5 at Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas.
The baseball tournament will feature the University of Mississippi, Baylor University, Texas Tech University, Texas A&M University, Texas Christian University and Louisiana State University. The 2017 lineup could be the strongest in the tournament’s 17-year history. Five of the six teams are ranked in the 2017 Collegiate Baseball Newspaper Fabulous 40 NCAA® Division I pre-season poll.

My wife and I went last year. A very fun time at the park because you can sit where ever you wish, great ball and the roof is open. Stunningly good weather. I may very well go down tomorrow. Our HUUUUUUGE yearly, Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is kicking off next week and the annual BBQ cookoff is tomorrow and we have tickets to that so, I may have to catch the games on Sunday. Last year I witnessed a kid from TCU hit it out of the park.....I mean, literally out of Minutemaid Park onto the street.
