In case you don’t know, I love baseball. I love the strategy, the situational awareness. I love the small bursts of excitement followed by anticipation for the next big play. I love that baseball means spring is here and summertime is around the corner. I love my wife a little more for loving baseball too.
During the winter, however, I have to put baseball out of my mind. It only saddens me to think that I won’t hear the crack of the bat for months. To protect myself from the bitter cold of a baseball-less winter, I put my baseball mind in a state of rest.
But now, with opening day only two weeks away, I emerge from my dugout hibernation. Bears awaken to the sounds of birds chirping and bees buzzing. I awaken to “Centerfield,” by John Fogerty: the ultimate baseball anthem.
