Opening Day

In Major League baseball today it is opening day for some teams. Yes March 31st is the first day for baseball play and it probably couldn’t be on a colder day all around the northern and eastern areas. In New York it is 42 degrees, which is the high, and for tomorrow’s opener in Cleveland there is snow on the field as of today. But enough about the whether because it is Opening Day! It is always an exciting day getting your fantasy teams ready and watching some real competitive baseball for the first time since October. I have been watching the Yankees game and even though they are playing the Twins division rivals in Detroit I am rooting for Detroit because I want New York’s streak of 10 straight home opener wins to end. So far it has been a neck to neck game but the Yanks just hit a homer in the bottom of the 7th inning to take a 4-3 lead. More exciting is when the Twins will have there opener. I want to see what kind of lineup we put out there to face Ricky Romero. I also can’t wait to see the Twins home opener, which is another week away. Hopefully it really is spring time when next week comes to be now that we have a lovely outdoor stadium in Minnesota. The crisp air, the freshly cut grass, the crack of the bat, the sound of a 95 mile per hour fast ball hitting the catchers mitt, and the roar of the crowd as the home team gets the game winning run across, yes sir it is baseball time once again.

    What a fine descriptive piece this is… especially as you bring it across home plate. Good writing!
