Baseball is Right Around the Corner!

Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd;
Just buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack,
I don't care if I never get back.
Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don't win, it's a shame.
For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out,
At the old ball game.

Kasey At The Bat

I love this time of year. Spring, baseball, the Boston Red Sox! I've been a Red Sox fan for as long as I can remember. I lived in Boston when I was little and it was my favorite city growing up. Being Irish, as well, helps. Boston is full of the Irish!  When I heard that Kasey (Kasey at the Bat) & Jessa (Jessa Olson) were doing a Baseball Season Countdown link up I had to absolutely join in!  Every Thursday for the month of March there is a different theme. Today's topic is our favorite baseball memory!

Growing up in Roanoke our neighboring city, Salem, had a minor league team called the Salem Avalanche (now they are the Salem Red Sox).  In 1997 Mill Mountain Theater was currently running the production of Damn Yankees. I was a volunteer for that show a whole bunch! Oh, and I was totally in love with one of the actors. I was a freshman in high school and totally thought I could make a gay man fall in love with me! Anyways :) It was one of MMT's summer shows and since baseball was in season at the time the cast went to a game one night. It was sooo much fun. We got a HUGE group picture with all the cast that was there and me and my two friends. I realized that the picture is in storage somewhere, so I don't have it available to scan and post. But trust me, it's great! I'm a shrimpy little high school freshman with acne all over my forehead! Haha!
