Welcome to baseball season. Sure March Madness has its Final Four still to come and the NBA is winding down its regular season, but this time of year is special for baseball. The Major League Baseball season has begun. Stadium across the country today are filled with hope and wonder as every team starts their season with the goal of winning a championship. While the outfield grass is trimmed and watered, as homeowners we’re doing much of the same as we’re prepping our lawns for mowing.
Ah, playoff baseball. A crisp in the night air and you break out your team hoodie or blanket as you head to the ballpark excited with anticipation for what the evening may hold. Or, as most of us will do, we’ll settle into our favorite seat on the couch with bag of chips in hand and enjoy the fall classic from the comfort of our homes.
The opening day of the Major League Baseball season is upon us and to me there’s no sport that better relates to home than baseball. Think about it. Home is an essential part of the baseball vernacular. You’ve got home plate, home run, “root, root, root for the home team” is part of the infamous song Take Me Out to the Ballgame, and then there’s the insider vocabulary like “he covers a lot of real estate out in center.” Not only that, but baseball is a game that for me brings back memories of home.
