I'm Ready

The stories are shallow and mostly filler lately. We all are waiting for the first pitch to be thrown. I remember when I was a kid and my grandfather took me to a Sunday double header at the stadium many years ago. Ken Brett was pitching (George's brother) and he hit a home run and two doubles for the Red Sox as the Yanks lost both games.

It didn't matter much. I was at the ball park and wolfing down hot dogs, Cracker Jacks and peanuts. How were we able to eat so much junk? I was praying for a foul ball to be hit my way and I did finally get one in 1973 from Reggie Jackson when he was on the A's. It's a little beaten up from the years of moving from one end of the country to the other, but I have it. I can still eat a ton of over priced processed food whenever I'm at a game even today. There's something about being at a ball park that does that to me. Spring training is the time when I get to see a rookie or two maybe stand out and the Yanks have a few, but our roster is done except for maybe a bench player.
I'm ready.
