Thank You Mets for an amazing opening day, amazing time, amazing team. As I have said before, it is never easy. Please know My family and I are always pulling for the guys. And when you need a little lift, the team needs a big hit, give old 31 a little look, looking down on all of you. God Bless, see you all soon.
I have to say a big Thank You, to Mickey and the rest of the team. It was such a great honor to speak with the hitters, catchers, and just hang with the guys. I wish them and all of you nothing but the best, remember; nothing great ever comes easy. There will difficult times and tough stretches, frustrations and injuries. Everyone, team, management and fans need to pull together, faith will be tested. I will follow them closely and pull for them with all I have. Thank You all fans for your support and following my team in Italy. My team and fans in Italy are pulling for you, See you soon. M.P.
To all of you, a safe and Blessed 2018! May the Lord watch over you this year, give you peace, give you strength and the courage to carry on. As I said in my Hall of Fame speech, Never loose hope! Because one who has Hope lives differently. I appreciate all of you! Your messages, your love and when I toast tonight, I toast to all of you! I pray that all of your dreams come true. And remember to keep your priorities straight, God, family, Country, Wine, Pasta, and the oc...casional cigar. God Love all of you and please be safe!
My prayer for the new year: Eternal Father I hear your voice, just as you came to the Prophet Elijah in a whisper, I pray we hear your whisper to us. That we don’t let the little moments of Joy pass without praising you, that we enjoy each other and take care of each other and appreciate all your blessings. To all of you a wonderful 2018! Happy New Year.
I know it’s been a while since I posted on Facebook. I’ve been crazy busy with the team and other things. That doesn’t mean I haven’t been thinking about all of you guys and want to wish all of you a wonderful, joyful, Christmas season. I Truly hope your holidays are filled with peace. I know we are all getting ready with plans shopping, parties and overall stress. I hope all of you take some time to think about the reason for the season. I’ve already received the great...est gift a man can have. An amazing wife and family. The Lord has given me much. And as you can see to have my Dad work with my children and teach them the way he taught me puts a smile on my face. It is the greatest gift. I always pray for all of you... Sometimes it’s not the new this or that it’s just a moment that makes you smile. Take Care and Merry Christmas. God Bless all you guys.
My wife Alicia's birthday is tomorrow. I wanted to be the first to wish her a Happy Birthday. I can honestly say I have never been more proud of my wife. She is a wonderful, caring woman who has given me three amazing kids. She has a masters in psychology and has been instrumental in helping me with our project in Italy, as the "First Lady" of Reggiana. She is spending some rare free time to attend the Gucci show in Milan, in this photo. She has been an amazing "team" player, she is kind, giving, gracious, glamorous and strong. She brings laughter, fun and adventure to our family. We all know no marriage is perfect and we are not without disagreements but she always finds a way to compromise. Happy Birthday, I Love you.
Just wanted to thank all the fans who came to Cooperstown this past weekend. A Special welcome to the new HOF members especially "Pudge" a fellow Catcher. A year has gone by since my induction and I can tell you the excitement and appreciation never grows old. The love and support from all you guys never fails to make me smile. See you all soon. M.P.
A Very Special Happy Birthday to My Little Man Marco! This is the day he got his cast off after a broken leg! I know we all like to brag about our kids but he is just a special guy! Strong but sweet to his sisters and Mom and Dad, we are very blessed to have him and he is a true Gift from God, The joy and happiness he has brought us cannot be measured. Like many of you I know raising kids is not easy but the rewards far outweigh sacrifice. I am Truly grateful to all of you who offer kind wishes. You guys are the best and I hope to see all of you very soon. God Bless.
Really want to wish everyone a Happy Fourth of July. Every time I visit my Mom and Dad in Valley Forge, Pa. I am fortunate to have the beautiful park which I ...can have a nice jog, clear my head and enjoy the scenery. Recently, on the trail I happen to come across two graves, revolutionary soldiers, know only to God. It got me thinking about our country and how many of us, including me often take it for granted. These were probably two teenagers, greatly loved by their family who took off to join Washingtons Continental Army, for a chance to help create a new country, one born in certain rights from God, among those the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. These men were the first of a long line a service men and women who felt a sacred duty to protect something greater then themselves. We are so blessed to have the passion, heart and spirit of many after these two who put their lives at risk for us, so that we may enjoy the freedom which Our Lord gives, the freedom to choose. But, with these freedoms comes responsibilities. There cannot be freedom without responsibility, that I think is something most of us fail to grasp. I know as I continues to journey through life I have been eternally blessed, to meet many of you who, just do their best to make a better life for you and your loved ones. I pray for each and everyone of you, for your families and to anyone who is down or just needs a little lift. Fight the good fight. Take it from me, never stop challenging yourself to reach to someplace higher. It can be difficult, but the only failures are ones who do not attempt. God Bless you and the U.S.A.
I know it's been a while that I've posted on Facebook, Have been very busy with business and family. I miss all you guys and hope your late spring and early summer are going well. I just want to give a big shoutout to my team A.C. Reggiana on their amazing play recently. This team a beloved project/venture as a team owner has been one amazing experience. One beset by elation, challenges, cultural and language differences but also much Joy. When you attempt a project like ...this you cannot even think to tackle without the support of a loving wife and family. My wife Alicia has been amazing, not only as support for the team but helping improve our offices and streamline our basic business operations. We have a long way to go to climb to the higher levels of Italian soccer. It is not easy to compete in a country where soccer is the "National Passion" and pastime. There are many great clubs and players so the challenge is immense , but one thing for sure we are blessed by God and have many amazing people helping us along the way. This play is one that shows the heart and determination of our team recently. Watch our defender Alex Spano hustle back to save a potential goal that would have ended our season. This heart and never say die attitude is one that makes me realize why I am here. God Bless all of you! Chase your dreams and Say your Prayers! Amen.
Thanks all you guys for the love! Very Special memories. God Bless.
These are my Easter thoughts: Most Holy, Gracious and Loving Holy Father in Heaven. We humbly beseech thee. Our souls thirst for thee in a dry and desolate place. Your are the fountain from which all goodness flows. You are my Lord and my God! Please receive our eternal gratitude for the gift of your son our Lord Jesus Christ who having been sacrificed without blemish has risen and freed us from Sin. We humbly pray for all those in the world who are poor in spirit, have lost hope, or are in pain. We pray Oh Merciful Father that the light of the Holy Spirit shine down upon them and free them from darkness to find peace. Lastly, we pray for Our world leaders that Love and Peace pierce their hearts, A Happy and Holy Easter to All of you and your families. Amen.
