Musings from an old baseball fan

With the start of spring training, we shift our focus from the hot stove league to the grapefruit and cactus leagues, and ask ourselves a few questions.

How will that new acquisition look in an enemy uniform?
What number will he wear?

We long for the centerfield view from any stadium showing some pitcher’s windup and his offering to anybody batting.
Can we read the fine print?
What ballpark is it?
What teams were involved?
Who was pitching?
Was this from last year or is this new material?

Soon the exhibition games will start while a few players pursue the World Baseball Classic. Will this international effort be known as Selig’s Follies? Only time will tell.

Until next time.
