Many of you know Jake is in Arlington right now for a mini camp, just for them to see his progress, and meetings. He comes home tomorrow, and I am very excited to see him, not going to lie this week flew by I have been so busy with work, and about to move across the country!!
He had spoken with someone about if he could request a number for spring training, or the season and how that works..More than likely he would just get a random number (1-99), and that was fine too, but he thought he would try (never hurts to try right?!) He asked the Clubbie on Tuesday if there was any chance he could get #49 (my brothers football number) and they said "Oh i'm sorry, but all the numbers are already assigned for spring training; and I dont think we can change them, but let me see if I can talk to my manager, just to see..." Jake was thinking thats fine, no big deal and thought for sure it was done with.. Later that day, the clubbie and manager came up to Jake and said "We had to show you this, we thought this was so bizarre" and showed him the list.. they assigned Jake number 49 randomly!! They had no idea about my brother or anything, and Jake had the chills all over his body he was in such shock.. it took him a few moments to wrap his head around it, and told them he had to share the story about the meaning behind the number, why he wanted it so bad! They were in shock too, and had no idea when they gave him 49!! I mean talk about God just assuring Jake, He is always looking out for him! Jake was sick the first few days of the camp, of course and he NEVER gets sick so he was pretty down the fact of him being sick so this was so neat to happen! 13 DAYS UNTIL SPRING TRAINING.. We cannot believe it is already here, and we still have so much to do in so little time, but we will get it all done!!
