When The Little League Baseball Game Reminds You of Real Life




I learned something watching a father and son during a little league baseball game.

-  You can have confidence in life when someone who knows what to do is on your team.

The VP of The Roe Agency was coaching his son Evan’s little league baseball team.

It was game day, and Evan Herrenbruck was nervous when it was his turn at bat. He wanted to hit the ball and get to first base. What he didn’t understand was that 'all of the front yard practices with dad was about to pay off.'


While placing his feet into position, he looked over his shoulder at his father.

Evan didn’t seem sure, he seemed to be a little nervous, but when he looked at his father, he gained confidence. The look on his dad’s face gave Evan a boost of pride. His dad signaled their secret code for ‘eyes on the ball.’ Evan nodded and locked his six-year-old gaze on the ball in the pitcher's hand. He watched as it was thrown and rocketed towards him. All it took for Evan was one muscle memory swing to connect bat to ball, and the ball went soaring over second base and into the outfield.


Evan’s mouth flew open. He heard his father yelling, GO~! RUN! Orange baseball-field clay was flung into the air behind Evan as he plunged towards first base. He plowed through first and headed for second. At every base, Evan looked at his dad for confirmation to keep going. As he ran up to third his dad was standing at the base hollering, “KEEP GOING! RUN! HOME BASE!” Evan rounded third and raced for home.

His foot reached home base before the ball. Evan’s teammates howled with excitement.

“Home run!”


When I witnessed this father-son interaction I thought about how it is so good to have someone looking out for you; to have someone with experience on your team. I thought about how sometimes you do not know the best move for your family, but at The Roe Agency, we know the best insurance policies to protect your family.

3 Insurance Policies to Protect Your Home During Hurricane Season

 3 Insurance Policies to Protect Your Home During Hurricane Season

Hurricane Irma's landfall is just months behind us, and we are already receiving a warning for 2018 that is less than encouraging.  Hurricane season begins June 1st. Meteorologists are informing the country that this year the conditions are ripe for an active season. To summarize, Dan Kottlowski, a meteorologist and hurricane expert at AccuWeather said,  although our 2018 hurricane season will not be as eventful as last year, with warm temperatures across the Atlantic Basin, we have to assume there will be a better chance for the above-average number of storms across the Atlantic.

If you are as fatigued with hurricane cleanup as I have been these last many months, you might not like to learn that the season spans almost half the year from June through November. This expanse of time gives plenty of opportunities for storms to make landfall in our backyards again.

What type of insurance policies helps us to secure our home and family for another hurricane season? I have listed three critical policies for anyone living in South West Florida.

Flood insurance- Flood insurance is the first and most crucial step in preparing for hurricane season. People usually underestimate the chance of flooding, but 90 percent of all natural disasters include some form of flooding!

Windstorm Policy-  Windstorm insurance may cover damages from tornadoes, hurricane-force winds, hail and other weather that is accompanied by wind gusts that exceed 35 miles per hour.

Renters Insurance- Your landlord may provide insurance coverage for the structure of your home, but a renter is responsible for his belongings. Renters insurance covers the destruction or loss of your possessions if they are damaged by a storm or other disaster listed in the policy. A standard renters insurance policy also covers you if you are unable to live in your house or apartment due to damage caused by a hurricane.

At The Roe Agency, we know which policies will best protect your family from the next tropical storm this hurricane season. We are eager to speak with you for a complimentary review of your homeowner's insurance policy. Call our office at 239-593-7333 or visit to schedule an appointment today!
