You are hereGuest Writers / Cassidy Dover
Cassidy Dover is a real baseball wife. In fact, she's the wife of The Greatest Minor League Pitcher You've Never Heard Of, at least in her eyes. She's experienced the ups and downs of a minor league & Major League marriage for more than 10 years. She and her husband, Ray Dover, have a young child, a small home and are not millionaires. But they live The Baseball Life and can't imagine any other way of living.
I say "So far" because one day it will end - the career, not the marriage. Then what? There's no multi-million dollar nest egg to fall back on, so Ray is doing everything he can these last couple of years before time and all of its perceptions see him not get that offer to pitch one winter. Or middle of summer. Or post-spring training. You see, Cassidy and Ray live on a tightrope. They could fall to their left into The End. Or they could fall to their right into Incredible Opportunities. They're doing their best to lean to the right.
Cassidy is writing a weekly column for Jimmy Scott's High & Tight that you'll see here every Thursday morning. She's a great writer and you're going to love her. Almost as much as me. Almost as much as Ray.
