Sarah and I were tickled as toast to recieve email from our good friends from Morgan City, Lynette and David Flick, updating us on their son and former LSUE Bengal pitcher Brennan’s pro debut this summer as a free agent signee with the San Fransisco Giants organization.
We hadn’t heard from Brennan since he hosed down the Scottsdale, Arizona team in the NJCAA World Series last May, so Lynette’s report was good news.
Irony of ironies? Brennan’s last pitching assignment for LSUE in the World Series was against Scottsdale Community College. Where’s his first pro assignment? The Scottsdale Giants in the Rookie League! Maybe the World Series was a premonition of things to come.
Lynette reported in her email that she and David were able to visit Scottsdale earlier this summer to attend a four-game series and were privileged to witness Brennan’s first pro win. We can only imagine how proud they were.
Anyway, we’re excited for Brennan, and we pray success and happiness for him. We’ll miss seeing the Flicks at Bengal games next year, but as in all matters pertaining to life, we move on–It’s an upward and onward course!
