I love baseball

vPlaying baseball (and, eventually, softball) taught me everything I needed to know about life, about decision-making, about teams, about feminism.

But major league baseball sometimes leaves one cold — and that’s not just when your team doesn’t win. And I’m not the only one to think this.

  1. It was *the* game of childhood.

    I don’t begrudge the players what they earn. But it became a rich person’s game, at that level.

    I find I can only root for the teams in smaller markets to beat the teams in bigger markets. It pleases me, obscurely, when the millionaires beat the billionaires.

    • I think that’s why this time — though I don’t follow either team, much (GO CARDS!) — I was pulling for the Phillies. Oh, well.

  2. I miss softball. While on vacation over the summer, our family stopped in at a rec center with batting cages. I hit a few and boy did it feel good – even if I was a little rusty.
