It’s that time of year when summer turns to fall along with the Alberta clippers find their way South. It’s when the boys of summer abandon our areas, yards, parks and stadiums. Yes, it’s nearing the end of the baseball season, an event that for many of us marks the real end of summer and the start of winter. Sure the second season of baseball and the playoffs are just going to get started. But the end of the regular season is, for many of us, when we place the dreams of our group catching it all away for another year.
Like the smell of new-mown bud, the sights, sounds and smells of America’s pastime soon will fade to memory. So to help get us here are some ideas to remind us that next year’s opening day is just round the corner.
