But even that may have been superseded in a way last Saturday when Tuckett tuned into ESPN and watched his granddaughter, Tyler Mooring, go 3-for-3 and pitch most of the winning game in leading Santa Clara (St. George, Utah) over Texas in the World Series championship game for girls 12-15, an event that brought teams from all over the world to Kirkland, Washington.

"It may be worth a note," said Tuckett with a chuckle Saturday evening.

Yeah, coach, I'd take that kind of week any time.
