Major League Baseball in Afghanstan


So, when was the last time you got to play catch with some M. L. Baseball players? It was a first for me! I LOVE baseball!

They came for a visit, we asked if they would like to check out our UH-60s. So, after crawling around the helicopters for awhile, someone asked if they would play some catch! Too cool. Never knew a ML outfielder could throw such a mean knuckle ball!

These guys were great, and I wish all "famous" people were this fun to be around.

So, anyone recognize any of them??

Tim Salmon from the Angels
Dean Palmer from Detroit
Mike Remlinger from Chicago
Jeff Nelson from NY

Thanks guys, it was a day I wont forget soon!

Noticed you only seem to fly on business. No helicopter rides for baseball celebrities or for construction projects.

Sorry, but I'd much rather play baseball with all of YOU on the front line, fighting for us over there. You folks are the REAL role models! Take care, be safe! Thanks for serving our country!

Heck, I too wouldn't mind a ride also. I have always wanted a ride in Heli. I also would love a ride in the back seat of one of the Blue Angles or Thunderbirds, but that ain't never going to happen. I don't want to jump out of any airplane with the Golden Knights. I just ain't got the stomach for that.

Just stay safe.

Well, yes, all our flights are "business". However, we do get some good missions. We flew Toby Kieth when he was here, we flew the Vice Pres, we flew the Vikings Chear Leaders, Sen. Kerry and Sen. Hagle and many others. Thats our job!

Since driving over here is VERY challenging, most folks travel by plane or helicopter everywhere.

So, Im a role model... scary thought!

Thanks for the compliments guys.

"scary thought!", I don't think so..."role model"... damn straight!. I long winded you before and told you you're experiencing an era no one else has or ever would again. Relish the times and log every bit of it you can for posterity and your kids.

Keep posting....

OH MAN!!! Congrats Jeremy! That is awesome dude! Tell the wifey I said the same!

So, with me being a role model and all, I guess you are going to have to name the little crumb cruncher after me!

Again, congrats bud.
