I love baseball.
I love the sounds of the crack of the bat and the smack of the ball hitting the glove.
I love the smell of the grass and a new baseball right out of the box.
I love that there’s no clock and both teams get an equal amount of outs.
I love the home run trot and I love the bunt.
I love seeing the shortstop go in the hole to rob someone of a hit and I love seeing the runner stretch a double into a triple.
I love seeing a team turn the double play. I love seeing the runner make the turn at third and head for home on a single.
I love the mental game played between pitcher and hitter. I love the chatter of the infielders.
I love all of the statistics in baseball and how the numbers have historical importance. I still love looking at baseball cards.
Don’t waste your time telling me baseball is too slow. You don’t know what you’re talking about. I’ve never seen a great game that lasted too long or a bad game that was played too quickly – regardless of the sport.
Baseball is a beautiful game that requires skill and guts to master. I love the fact in it’s a game for people of all sizes.
A new Major League Baseball season starts this weekend. The minor league season – go Suns! – starts next week.
Yeah, you guessed it. I love that.
