I think the Yankees and the Dodgers have rookies who are tracking all time high home runs. I looked at the rookie with the Dodgers and he sure did not look like a steroid user. Sweet Swing. Great for baseball.

I would love to see baseball come back stronger.

I am hoping I can rally a little bit and go to one last White Sox game. I used to go too opening day with about five of my high school buddies. That tradition started when we were 16. We would skip school. Now two of us are seriously ill and I am not sure either of us could take the effort to go, but I am going to try to get my family to pick out a game we can go with the Grandkids. Ten tickets will require a SBA loan, but heck....there is nothing better than starting new traditions and baseball is American as apple pie. I love the game. I love the smells and sounds. Most of all I love the memories. Bo Jackson's opening day home run. Mickey Mantle hitting foul completely over the left field wall. Watching Horlen pitch a no hitter, and having old mayor Daley show up from 10 blocks away and sit only 10 seats in front of my mom and brother, going to Wrigley once each year to watch a Sunday double header where Hank would hit 2 or 3 home runs, going after the game and getting autographs from players who before getting in their cars would go to the fence and sign your program. No baseball does not have the mass media appeal of NBA basketball, and young kids are playing soccer in competition with baseball, but it will always be America's game.

These young players just excite the hell out of me. No steroids and pure swings. It does not get any better.

The price of tickets is unbelievable. We paid over $300 for 2 seats at Fenway for one game and $250 for the other game. Taking my grandkids... OMG

Ben Lively made his major league debut with the Philadelphia Phillies against the San Francisco Giants. Lively pitched seven strong innings, earning his first win of his major league career.

Local breezer from a nice family. So proud of him.
