National Pastime

Pitchers and catchers reported to Spring Training some time ago, and the teams are edging toward their first exhibition games. I’m not the fan of big league ball that I used to be, but the essential game, the look and feel of it, the smell of it … oh, perfection, oh, youth, oh, summer.

People ask me what I do in the winter when there’s no baseball. I’ll
tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.

Hey, I felt the same way … when I was 12.

The cool flag is from Tom Shieber’s great blog.
