The Real Fantasy Baseball . . . Chicago Style!


Just a cub?

the real fantasy ball




There is “no such thing” as “just a cub”.


Just a game?

Jay met Ty on the T-ball field at Northeast Tacoma Elementary School 27 years ago.

Also, on that day, we met Ty’s mom and dad. Life long friendships began.

Jay and Ty played ball together through high school, both making varsity in their freshman year. (Yep! They were good.)  They lived and loved the game.  They pursued and achieved (WAZZU) degrees in their “fields” of dreams (GO COUGS!), Ty in sports management, and Jay in broadcast journalism. They each earn a living doing what they love!

Last weekend was Jay’s bachelor weekend. Ty, now Jay’s best man, planned the event.

Eleven of Jay’s closest buds flew in and out during the two full days in Chicago (Wrigleyville).

Followed by a game of their own.

They packed a ton into two days.

The weather was perfect for biking, hiking, touring and boat rides.

They also packed in a lot of Brews, Italian beef sandwiches, Chicago Style pizzas and


. . . some notorious steaks.

The images from the weekend were social media posts.  The guys were kind enough to give us all a little peek into their experience.  Knowing most of them from their college years . . . they know how to party!

With the showers and the bachelor and bachelorette fests complete, we are in full wedding mode right now.

Checking our lists!








. . . and in all reality . . . spending.

(Yes. I keep it real.)

Life is your field of dreams!

Let’s keep it that way!
