Guys, I love baseball. I mean, I loooooove baseball. It was an acquired taste for me after having spent many years earning permanent bleacher butt for my brother's games. Once I finally learned the rules and what exactly was going on (also… the purpose of a shortstop), I was fascinated!

The ping! of a bat, the thump of the ball solidly hitting a glove, and the crazy 15 innings spent in the blazing sun on a Sunday afternoon at the old Alex Box! These were all part of the romantic notion of America's favorite pastime. 

If you have ever seen Moneyball or read the book, you might have an appreciation of the game afterward. It proves that baseball is the only sport where anyone can win at any time. Baseball is anyone's game, and it doesn't matter if you are Josh Hamilton or Barry Bonds. To quote Billy Beane, "How can you not be romantic about baseball?" 

Oh, my outfit? It was really really cold this day and this is the warmest coat in my closet…and I stole it from my Mom. Apparently my favorite coats are never truly mine.
