America’s Pastime

9 year old shortstop

Baseball has long been called “America’s pastime”; it’s been popular since the mid- 1800’s. In this day and age of instant gratification, it is hard to understand the sustained popularity of a sport with so much down time between mere seconds of frenzied action.

The baseball season is over for this nine year old who loves the game.  Regardless of the score, win or lose, he’s always looking forward to the next game.

Yes, he snagged the ball and made a perfect throw to first base for the out.

Thought for the Day:  Little League baseball is a very good thing because it keeps the parents off the streets.                                                                                          Yogi Berra
