Dale Murphy Retweets My Picture to 35,000 People

We were on vacation in Florida last week, and I got a chance to play catch with my dad in the park because the weather was so nice.  I used my brand new glove that I got for Hanukkah, and my dad used the glove that he used when he was my age.

The glove was a Dale Murphy model from the late 1980s or early 1990s.  Dale Murphy was the star outfielder for the Atlanta Braves for much of the 1980s.  He wore #3.  He Murphy won the National League MVP twice and won the Silver Slugger four years in a row.  He also won the Gold Glove award for 5 years in a row!  Hopefully one day he will make it into the Hall of Fame.

I took a picture of my dad’s glove that we were playing with and sent it to Dale Murphy on Twitter.  And he re-tweeted me!!!  Look:

Lots of people have “favorited” my tweet and replied to it.

Another interesting thing happened on Twitter yesterday.  Since I was in Florida, I sent a message to 2 Nationals players who live in Florida– Gio Gonzalez and Michael Morse— asking what I should do for my last day.  And Gio Gonzales wrote back to me!

I think it’s really cool that so many famous people read my tweets and write back to me.  Like Danny Espinosa did a couple weeks ago, but actually he didn’t write back, but that’s OK because I know he read my website.

Stay tuned for daily MattsBats updates now that I’m back home from vacation.
