Today I went to the St. Petersburg celebration of Juneteenth. If you do not know what it is check out this website http://www.juneteenth.com/history.htm. Anyway, during the celebration they put on a Negro Baseball League game. I walked over with the team right before it was going to begin. Once we got there, this guy was tightening his belt. So I made the comment, “Look at you, all skinny like BJ Upton.” The guy laughed and said, “BJ is my cousin but I don’t call him BJ.” I laughed too, at the shock that out of all the baseball players I could of picked I said BJ but something about this guy really reminded me of him…little did I know, he was a relative. That is what I call a small but very cool world. I wish I got the guys name or contact info because I think it would of been a great piece on this guy who played in a Negro Baseball League game on Juneteenth and his cousin(s) play professional ball.
