I have this book called, “1001 Reasons to Love Baseball.” I usually read it this time of year when there’s a late season snowstorm or just get excited about the upcoming season. It’s a great book with well, 1001 insights into baseball. I’d like to share a few of these thoughts:
430: The season yet to be played.
582: Haray Caray’s,” Holy Cow!”
705: Satchel Paige–pitched 3 scoreless innings for the A’s at the age of 59
706: Seeing a game for free. (Bleacher seats at Ebbetts Field cost fifty cents.
3: Skipping school or calling in sick to go to the park on Opening Day.
8: Taking vacation days to see spring training games.
13: You’ve got tickets and the weatherman says “it’s going to be a great day for a ball game.”
These as you can see, are only a few and picked throughout the book. It’s a nice read and gets me excited every year.
