The Boys are Back in Town

00-Intro

Guess who just got back today?
Them wild-eyed boys that had been away
Haven’t changed, haven’t much to say
But man, I still think them cats are crazy.

Baseball’s back!

The boys have spent the past several months practicing
and warming up in spring training.

01-Warmup

They’ve honed new skills and cross-trained.

02-Crosstrain

Meanwhile, grounds crews across the country
have pristinely groomed each major league diamond.

03-Groundscrew

04-Groundscrew

It’s time to take the field.

05-Take the field

06-Take the field

The strong rivalry at first face-off hasn’t diminished.

07-Opposing Teams

But never underestimate the fun to be had by all.
(Thank goodness no one had any pie.)

08-Fun

The excitement amid the crowd is palpable.

09-Excitement

Search is getting ready in the on-deck circle.

10-Search on deck

Finally he strides to the plate.
He swings!

11-Search Up

It’s a hard grounder to the shortstop.

13-Destroy Fields

Destroy judges its trajectory.

12-Destroy Judges

He fields it cleanly and runs the ball back in.

14-Destroy Run in

Side retired.

15-Side Retired

Destroy is up.
He takes in the tee as the timeless styling’s of Vin Scully call out his stats.

16-Destroy ready

He swings!

17-Swing

The sweet sound of the crack of the bat.
(Except not against the ball.)

18-Swing and miss

Oops. Not what I meant to do.
Here’s to getting it down sometime in the next 161 games.

19-oops

PLAY BALL!
(And go Blue.)

    The world is better with baseball in it. I’m glad your kids are into it (CJ, in a last-ditch attempt to get me to let him stay awake, will ask if I want to watch baseball so that he can watch it with me)
