It is time to ‘Play Ball’ again as Opening Day was today.
This is a day that many look forward to each year. As March Madness draws to a close it is time to start focusing on Baseball.
Of course this brings back many memories of playing baseball when I was a kid. Unfortunately I did not get a lot of playing time as I usually played the position of bench warmer.
However, playing Little League Baseball did help build my love of baseball.
Baseball is in the memory of many even if they didn’t play Little League Baseball. Here is a great cartoon by Frank Andrea Miller that illustrates how many kids played baseball.
This time of year I also have great memories of working part time for the Omaha Royals running part of the scoreboard. A good family friend was the operator and I would help him out and fill in for him when he had to travel for business.

Soon fields across the country will be filled with kids playing baseball and softball. It is definitely a time to ‘Play Ball’.
