America's favorite pastimeBaseball, the American pastime. Well maybe for a lot of Americans but it never really was for me, that is until my grandson started playing T-ball. You can have the Major Leagues, I’ll take the local park district T-ball leagues any day.
To watch those little guys and gals try to figure out how to make their arms communicate with their legs and catch or throw a ball to boot is pure entertainment.
Then to see the thrill on their faces when the miracle actually happens and the ball really does stay in their glove. You can’t help but smile and get excited for them. Welcome to summer and my kind of baseball.
