Welcome to HammelTown!

After our first exciting year in Baltimore, we are ready to settle down and get going on some projects that are near and dear to me and my family. The first member that my wife Elissa and I welcomed into our family is Sadie, a 40lb 7 year old Boston Terrier. She has been with us through the excitement of the World Series with our first team Tampa Bay, a 3 year run with Colorado and a whirlwind year in Baltimore that took us to the Playoffs.

She’s been there through it all, most recently welcoming our newest family member, our son Beckett. They are best friends, playmates, brother and sister, and share every part of the day together. Sadie is even Beckett’s throwing coach, retrieving balls for hours on end, maybe helping him carve out a future baseball career??


We’ve always wanted to do something that honors the love we have for our 4 legged family member and have some exciting things in store this season!

So stay tuned for updates on events and happenings in HammelTown,

    Nice blog Mr. Hammel! Even though I’m a Brewers fan, I am a fan of yours. I hope you can get off the DL soon and push the Orioles to the postseason!
    I was also wondering if you could check out my blog “Bleacher Boy.” Come and check out a kid’s view on all things baseball.

    My son is 7 and is named Beckett. Super cool name. We live in Scottsdale and he plays machine pitch in the Cal Ripken league. We work very hard every day throwing and hitting in our batting cage. Coach wants him to pitch next season when move to kid pitch. We’re huge Cubs fans (wife grew up in Chicago). Red Sox and Patriots too. I’m sure you’ve heard enough but Beckett is a super cool kid and a super cool name. Have a great season!!
