I'm excited about baseball this year because it's been a LLLLLLONG, Cold Winter. I'm ready for baseball because it brings warm weather, and a new SPRING in life.

I'm sticking by them, too. Our team has GOT to climb up to the top one of these years.

I am considering going to a day game on a week day. I love just sitting in the ballpark...

Dang it, girl!! I can't say nuttin', cuzz I too get that excitement. I get it for Baseball, NASCAR, and Football. Baseball especially because I too enjoy the games. I come into Salisbury to watch the Delmarva Shorebirds. The smell of the season in general. Fresh cut grass, hotdogs, cotton candy, stale beer (which I don't drink), and the sound of cheering, booing, and the sound of the ball landing in the catchers mit, and hearin' the umpire yell "play ball or yourrrrr out!!"

Success comes in CANS!
Failure, comes in CAN'TS!

I get butterflies in my stomach when baseball season begins. When I attend my first game for the season my whole body tingles from excitement. I suppose I could pinpoint where that feeling comes from if you twisted my arm but I like the simple answer of..baseball makes me happy.

The difficult is done at once; the impossible takes a little longer.

emoticon The sound of the crack of the bat as the ball sails over the right field fence at Camden Yards as the O's win the game in the 9th.

But mostly, being there to the game, and hearing the umpire yell at the top of his lungs..."PLAY BALLLL!!!"

I am repeating what Tim said almost a year ago; the start of baseball means the start of spring and summer.
I also like to take a day off from work and go to a day game. It just feels so good!

I know, I thought it would get a few fevers up! Fever, what fever? Baseball fever! It's catching! Don't worry, I got more fun things we can do until baseball season starts where we can have fun and pass time. I'll post another sometime this weekend.

Don't stop, Connie, you were on a roll! I will certainly agree with both of you. I would have to say the first thing that I think of would be a big hot dog with mustard on it! I love the sounds of the people working there and the beer man shouting out his calls! The excitement in the air as everyone gathers into the stadium. I even thought it was exciting just go round and round the stadium to find your seat! Just the anticipation - seeing your section number - then seeing the green, green field and the bright lights of a night game shining on the players as they practice throwing back and forth! And as Tim said so well, the crack of the bat and sound of the mit! Watching someone steal second base!!!! Then third!!!! I can see a HIGH FLY BALL being announced by the commentators and everyone's head following the ball and going "Whew" when we caught it safely! (I think I'd better rest) emoticon

To me, it's knowing Spring and summer are coming. Some people get bored sitting home, watching baseball on t.v. Me? NO WAY! I'll turn on the A/C., have me a tall glass of diet rootbeer, lay back and enjoy. I love going even to the Delmarva Shorebird games. I enjoy the atmosphere, and the smell of the fresh cut grass on the field, hearing the ball when it lands in the catchers mit, and hearing the sound of the ball getting smacked by the wooden bat.
