Father Tim
Tim Schenck is an Episcopal priest, husband to Bryna, father to Benedict and Zachary, and \x34master\x34 to Delilah (about 50 in dog years). Since 2009 I've been the rector of the Episcopal Parish of St. John the Evangelist in Hingham, Mass. (on the South Shore of Boston). I've also served parishes in Maryland and New York. When I'm not tending to my parish, hanging out with my family, or writing, I can usually be found drinking good coffee -- not that drinking coffee and these other activities are mutually exclusive. I hope you'll visit my website at www.frtim.com to find out more about me, read some excerpts from my book \x34What Size are God's Shoes: Kids, Chaos & the Spiritual Life\x34 (Morehouse, 2008), and check out some recent sermons.

I’m taking a break from food and gardening for just this one blog to devote it to my beloved New York Mets. For those that follow baseball know that the Mets ace, Johan Santana threw the first no-hitter in the Mets 8020 game history against the St. Louis Cardinals this past Friday night! Up to that point the only Met to throw a no-hitter was their pitching machine. It may not seem like a big deal, but to Mets fans, like myself, it is a HUGE deal.





Naturally, it isn’t without controversy. Carlos Beltran, who was traded to San Francisco by the Mets in the middle of last season, hit a ball in the middle innings that was clearly fair by hitting and leaving a mark on the 3rd base chalk foul line but was deemed foul (shouldn’t it be called the fair line since any ball that hits it is supposed to be ruled fair?) I guess it’s like driving on a parkway and parking on a driveway… It’s all about continuity, or the lack of, at this point.





I was watching the game when about the 6th or 7th inning Gary, Keith, and Ronnie started talking about the fact that no Cardinal had yet gotten a hit off of Johan. At that point I envisioned being able to send it to my brother Mike, also a huge Mets fan and for even longer than myself, a text about how finally we had a no-hitter. No joke. It’s as if I have ESPN or something…err I mean ESP. The weird part is that I usually turn the channel occasionally to see if the grass was greener on some other channel but not this game, I was there from the beginning to the end and look what I was rewarded with, history!





Okay, I know I sound all sappy and all, but I am not afraid to admit that I had more than one tear streaming down my cheek when it was all said and done last Friday night. As far as the Beltran controversy, what controversy, it was a foul ball.
