Mud and All; Thank God

There they were: two adult “coaches” and about ten 10 year olds, running basepath drills in the mud at a city park nearby my office. Late in the afternoon, in New England mid-March, in sub-40 degree weather, with remnants of snow in the shadows and under the bushes. And, having fun I might add. For me, this is what baseball is about; not steroids, Donald Fehr, A-rod’s mega-contract, or anti-trust legislation. If you haven’t done it lately, go to a little league or high school or Legion baseball game this spring or summer. The kids play hard, they mostly play it well, and they have fun. The price is right too – for you and for them.
