Take Me Out to the Ballgame


One of the best things about Blogging is getting to read stories that I would never run across in the Post, the New Yorker, or the other sundry things I read. This week’s favorites both look at variations on our national pastime.

Throwing Hammers talks about his experience as the coach of a tee-ball team of 5 and 6 year-olds. Sometimes they just need a hug.

Ruth D tells the story of an athlete who makes a very unconventional home run (the second time around).

These two accounts are like chicken soup for the soul. Read them and smile!

Oh my gosh, Barbara, these blogs were terrific. I laughed so hard I cried all the way through Hammer's and simply cried all the way through - oh dear I don't remember her name. They are heartening and uplifting stories beautifully written. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the nod - this bunch is definitely one of the more memorable ones I've had in my coaching tenure.

Hammer -- Good parenting practice. You can pull them down off the fence, hone their batting skills, give them a hug, and then hand them back to their parents. A sweet deal!

I sometimes think that if it wasn't for blogs I would have no idea what was going on in the world.

Semi -- FYI: I don't respond to comments like Nice Blog from strangers. You should come up with something a little more original if you want me to read your Blog!

Gary -- I would definitely not be reading about baseball anywhere other than on Blogger. Is that un-American?
