A Baseball Mural

12.18.2013

About two months ago Adam started working out with his other BYU draftees on campus. They would go to the athlete weight room and then spend some time over at the field seeing their old teammates. Adam was telling me about the new changes to the club house. Most notably, an extended coach's office for the new staff. And then a little over a month ago Adam got an email from his BYU coach from the season before he was drafted, Coach Littlewood with the subject: New wall by coaches office. It said, "Thought you would like to see the design that is going outside my new office for the whole world to see.."


Adam forwarded it over to me. And I was so excited! I felt like such a proud wife. Adam was going to be on the BYU Baseball wall forever and ever. Which is slightly ironic, because just one week earlier we had been talking about the banners out front of the stadium of former BYU players. I asked Adam, "Do you think if you do well as a professional baseball player they will put up a banner of you?" And he said, "Nope! Those are guys that did awesome things at BYU. I never did anything that made me an all-American or anything at BYU." But now, here he is, one of the mural guys! The other guys on the team are Jaycob Brugman, he was drafted by the Oakland A's, Jacob Hanneman, drafted by the Chicago Cubs, Adam Law, drafted by the LA Dodgers, Hayden Nielsen, their freshman teammate that made a huge impact last season, and Coach Littlewood. And over the weekend the mural went up so Adam took me over to the field late one night before it closed so I could see it.


I really wanted Adam to be in the photo but he is too modest and said, "I don't want to be one of those guys!" So you just get a nice photo of my handsome husband on the wall. I was especially excited because he looks like a really big deal. Because, in my mind, he is. He is the coolest, most hard working, dedicated, motivated, and especially handsome man around.
