A Baseball Fix For You
This from the Thursday edtion of the LA Times....and then a quick comment....
TOKYO -- "David Wright and Andruw Jones homered in the top of the ninth inning Thursday as a team of major leaguers erased a three-run deficit to tie the Yomiuri Giants 7-7 in a warmup game for an MLB All-Star tour of Japan.
Atlanta Braves outfielder Jones led off the ninth with his second homer of the game that made it 7-5 for the Giants.
Wright, who hit 26 homers for the New York Mets this season, then tied the game with a shot to left off Yomiuri pitcher Takahiko Nomaguchi."
Peter here, just trying to give you a taste of baseball somewhere, ANYWHERE. In this case, across the wide Pacific. Makes me yearn for February, with its ice cold bitter wind chills, and the ever deepening piles of snow. Some old, brown and ugly. And some fresh, white, newly born, fallen from the heavens. And that's A LOAD OF BS. Give me the warmth of the coming Spring and the umpire's sound, those wonderful words. "Play ball." Oh yes.
