The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball.
I haven't really seen baseball since I attended a Baltimore Orioles playoff game versus the Cleveland Indians. The Orioles managed to lose in bizarre fashion.
The Orioles essentially forced manager Davey Johnson to resign in the off-season over an incident involving Roberto Alomar. That irritated me enough, I was "done" with baseball.
Since that time I have attended one game. I watched the Nationals play a game as part of a work event. That was an interesting game, too, two balks were called.
However, that will change this year. The kids are involved in softball and T-ball. I bought a glove to play "You know, Dad! That game where you are catching the ball over your head!", as Tobias calls it. Most of us know it as "catch".
I figured, I would try and follow both the Orioles [ although I'm still irritated with them ] and the Nats. So far the Orioles are 3-0 after sweeping Rays, and the Nats managed to win 1 game out of their first 3.
I probably won't go to a big league game, but I may drag the kids out to a minor league game.
