God, I love the game of baseball!!! I can't believe that Jesus wasn't born in the 'baseball era'...but I believe firmly, there are baseball fields in heaven!!!
Today I had a 'Tale of Two Cities' baseball experience...My 9 year old son struck out twice and couldn't get the bat off his shoulders in a 9 AM game threatened to be cancelled by rain...we lost!
Then after a day dotted with a fast moving front bringing rain showers throughout the afternoon, my older 11 year old son had his 5:30 PM game scheduled...
Of course the field needed much assistance and TLC and groundskeeping 'near miracles' to prepare it for a 'safe' game of 'major' little league baseball! So let the game begin...batter up!!!
It's after midnight as I prepare this, so I will shorten this post by a proud father...My son, Justin, hits a triple over the centerfielder's head, follows it with a clean hard hit double, walks, scores the tying run in the last inning to send us into extra innings...and we finally win the exciting game full of great plays and missed opportunities...
I turn to my 8 year old...and gently say, "Did you learn anything, son"?
God, I love baseball!!!
