Opening Day

Opening Day

Today we celebrate the official opening day of Major League Baseball. The outfield grass and infield dirt, the fast ball and the base hit. Every year around this time I am taken back to the days of summer and my time in little league. I remember how excited and how intimidated I was during tryouts. Every time the coaches  popped that ball up to me my heart stopped, my eyes would close , and I would pray that it would land in my glove. Suffice to say I was not really good but I enjoyed the game for what it was, an opportunity to bond with other kids my age.  It was through little league that I bonded with so many of my friends and for the most part stayed out of trouble.
