Jamie Burke is an Oregon boy who grew up in Roseburg, and played for Oregon State University. Cary and I met Jamie and his lovely wife Katrina at the funeral of a mutual friend several years ago. Jamie was wearing his World Series ring that he received while playing for the Chicago White Sox. The following season, Jamie became a Mariner.
During hunting season a couple of years ago, Jamie was here in La Pine and Cary and I were invited to go to pizza with the family friends. That is when Jamie gave me the baseball above. I love it!
Man, I'm Jonesing for baseball season.
