Guess what sports season is here?

Buy some peanuts and Crackerjacks and take yourself out to Criminal Grace for Five on Friday.

My responses:

1-My favorite baseball team would be the Boston Red Sox. It's mostly a regionalist thing. I understand baseball, I can watch it and enjoy it, but I'm not a really big fan anymore.

2-a-My first baseball game that I remember was Little League near home. There were hot dogs and soda. I also remember some other little girls doing cheers.
b-My first major league game was at Shea Stadium. Frankly I can't remember much about it. Seems like Reggie Jackson made an appearance.

3-I won't watch the games but I will follow the scores and rankings in the paper.

4-Who will win doesn't interest me as much as who ultimately wins. If that makes any sense.

5-Not really much of a one for sports movies. But I'm a sucker for the climatic scene from Angels in the Outfield.

I have always enjoyed baseball but for some reason the last few years I have no interest in it. Baseball season has been going on here with spring training since March 1. We used to go to a few spring-training games but it's just gotten so expensive it's not worth it anymore. I must admit that I did get really excited the year the Diamondbacks played the New York Yankees in the World Series 2001. That last game here in Phoenix was a nailbiter to the very last. What an exciting time we had. Watching it on TV was way better than being there because we didn't have to fight crowds!

We had a bush league here in Elmira, too. It recently closed. I was unable to attend any games at all. Dunn Field is close to the Chemung River, and the afternoon games were notoriously buggy. Also, I avoid any activity set in the full summer sun. But we had some truly rabid, loyal fans who kept things going. We will miss the constant, albeit low-key, buzz.

My first memory of baseball is on my step daddy's shoulders at an Angel's game.
Supposedly my whole family was there, but I just remember Daddy and I.He bought me ice cream, and a batting helmet that I had until he died when I was 14. (unfortuneately, in a fit of teenage angst, I threw it away :*( ...)
This is also one of my earliest memories. One of my favorites.

I'm far from an avid baseball fan, but I occasionally enjoy watching our Minnesota Twins play (on the TV), especially during the ninth inning if the score is close. And I like to keep up with how they're doing in team ratings.

I very, very seldom go to a live game at the stadium, but when I do, I thoroughly enjoy people watching and eating some prime choices of food. (Yick, it's so expensive!)
