Baseball is Back

If your spouse itemizes on a separate return or you were a dual-status alien, check here.” (What?!) It has been several hours now and the numbers on these IRS Forms 1040 are beginning to spin like psychedelic prisms.I need to stop before I screw something up and possibly commit the egregious act of giving the federal government a single penny more than they are owed. In fifteen minutes he will be here. We are heading to see some NCAA Division 1 college baseball starring the University of Maryland Terrapins versus the University of Delaware Blue Hens.

The long missing sun now shined on a pristine turf field. Organ music was playing. Some of the finest college baseball players in the country were right there in front of us, sparkling in their excellence.My son was entranced, intently studying their every move. The lead off hitter strode confidently to the plate and neatly placed his feet in the batter’s box. “Play” the umpire called and so it began.Not having it for all of these months made me realize just how much I need its particular order and rhythm. Suddenly, my eyes were tearing up.Baseball is back. Who else knows this feeling better than my fellow baseball bloggers? Thank you for understanding.

    Oh, I understand! That first game of the season is magical. Throughout the game I’m usually just looking around the ballpark, taking it all in, and saying to myself: “wow, I can’t believe I’m really here…”.

    Yes! Glad to see it back; like the spring itself, baseball offers a sense of renewal, of something new with each new season. Though it would be nice if the O’s could win a preseason game :)…but I figure, if they get an 0-21 out of the way now, but are ready for the season, I’ll be good with that.

      🙂 Thanks, T! I agree! I’d like to see something more positive coming out of O’s Spring Training as well 🙂
