monday
I’m back after a few days of R&R last week…but I do ask for prayers for Lilly’s family as she lost her uncle last week and is at his funeral services today.

Today our Mystery Monday focused on tomorrow night’s Major League Baseball All-Star Game with a two-part trivia question.

Today’s question: Who are the youngest position player and the youngest pitcher to ever start an All-Star Game?

Answers? Al Kaline, 1955 (20 years and 6 months) and Dwight Gooden, 1986 (21 years, seven months). ¬†Congratulations to Ruthie from Mount Vernon who identified them and wins the $5 gift certificate to Troyer’s of Apple Valley. Here are Kaline’s and Gooden’s baseball cards from those years:

Today’s Word of Day is cannikin (CAN-ih-kin); a noun that means a small drinking cup or can. It can also mean a small wooden bucket.

Thanks for listening!
