Living His Dream

Sistersflorida-79

Ever since my nephew Wyatt was a wee little boy, he's dreamed of playing baseball for the Florida Gators.

Way back when he was a young child, his parents bought a brick for the Florida Gator courtyard with his and his sister Seanna's names on it. Having been brought up just a few miles from Florida's Gainesville campus, Wyatt has been a Gator fan his whole life.

This week Wyatt turned 21 and is now a junior at the University of Florida, majoring in business...

...and playing baseball for the Florida Gators.

He's living his dream!

So of course we had to check out a couple of Gator practices and scrimmages while we were in Florida.

His momma Maria is very proud of him! And so are Aunt Barb and Aunt Terry...and our whole family.

This will likely be Wyatt's last season playing for the Gators, as he will be eligible for the MLB draft next summer. He had an incredible sophomore year, leading the SEC conference in home runs, and was selected to be part of the elite summer USA national team.

Assuming he has a good spring season, Wyatt will enter the draft and take his dream to the next level.

But right now, he's just loving to play baseball for the Gators!

After playing left field last year, it's looking like he might be playing centerfield this spring.

Not only is he a fantastic hitter, he's amazing in the field too!

It's fun just watching someone enjoy life so much! A few snaps from a couple of Gator fall practices....

Everything is contest for Wyatt! That's him on the right (look at those powerful legs!), racing his teammate in...
