Apr. 10 – America’s pastime

In celebration of MLB’s recent Opening Day…. Today’s #TBT includes one if my absolute favorite sports…. Baseball. Ever since I can remember I’ve always had a fascination with the sport. It’s one of those things that I regret and I wish that if I could turn back time that I could get a chance to play the sport I love so much. As I was growing up I remember every evening after dinner catching the Atlanta Braves on TBS with my Dad. It’s one of those things that I cherish and will surely remember for the rest of my life. I love being at a field no matter the size or professional level…. Just soaking up the “feel and pageantry” that is the sport of baseball. I guess it’s no surprise that some of my favorite sports movies include baseball… Simply because it hits home on so many emotions that pulls at my heart. Movies like Bull Durham, Field of Dreams, In a League of Their Own, For Love of the Game, and more recently Moneyball just to name a few. I’ve luckily been able to visit several ballparks and look forward to fulfilling one of my bucket list items of visiting Spring Training and going to as many Major and Minor league parks as I can. -C
