Baseball in America

Baseball is American's favorite pastime and I finally went to my first game of the season yesterday. Such a rich heritage for this country, unlike other sports you can compete if you are short, tall, slender or stocky. I love this game and KC is the home of the Black Baseball League Hall of Fame, a great destination spot to add if you haven't been.

Me and my team!!!!!
The Royals stadium is one of the nicest in the country.

Eric Hosmer is one of our guys, the MVP of the All Star Game.

What started out as a game called "rounders" and games played with sticks in the streets has become a game everyone can get around and enjoy.

Linking with ABC WEDNESDAY

I have seen baseball on TV, and it looks interesting, but I don't know the rules.
I don't know why it is not played in my country.
Have a great week.

I always enjoyed rounders at school, I don't know why baseball never caught on here possibly because cricket is our summer game. It always looks a fun spectator sport on the TV.

Every year, the Husband and I talk about seeing a baseball game. Rarely do though. We're so lazy to drive up to Oakland or San Francisco. You never know, there's still plenty of time to make it to one game this year. :-)

There are SO many stats on a major league scoreboard. Went to Yankee Stadium last year, and a pitcher in his first game gave up a run in his first inning. His ERA was 9.00, but after 2 innings it was 4.50, and after 3 innings, it was a respectable 3.00.

I LOVE baseball. My daddy played semi pro ball way before i was born and he caught behind home plate for the great Babe Ruth. LukeHochevar who pitched for the Royals during the World Series last year is a sLOVenian or BoJon as we say, and his dad Brian is from my hometown Pueblo, CO. Grew up in BoJontown with a good friend of mine, a girls softball coach Jacque. Those BoJons are smart and talented. Brian's daughter Brittany is an Olympic volleyball and beach volleyball player. She was also born in Pueblo, CO. I guess I should say Luke won the game for the oyals during the final world Series game! Woo Hoo! Love baseball. xo
