PHOTO FAVES OF THE DAY

HAVE I EVER MENTIONED THAT I LOVE THIS GAME OF BASEBALL?
WE WENT TO A BALL GAME TODAY. ROCKIES AND THE CUBBIES. EXCELLENT GAME.
ROCKIES OUT EXECUTED THE CUBS, AS EVIDENCED BY THIS SEQUENCE OF AN ATTEMPTED STEAL OF SECOND BY THE ROCKIES.


HIGH THROW FROM THE CATCHER THAT COULDN'T BE HANDLED.
EVEN WHEN MISTAKES ARE MADE, BASEBALL CAN BE A BEAUTIFUL BALLET. LUCKY FOR THE CUBS THAT THEIR 2ND BASEMAN WAS ALERT ENOUGH TO BACK UP THE PLAY.

PERHAPS WE'RE WITNESSING THE PASSING OF THE LOVE FOR THIS GAME OF BASEBALL, FROM ONE GENERATION TO THE NEXT.
OH.......AND THE ROCKIES WON 7 TO 4. IT REALLY SEEMED CLOSER THAN THAT.
MUST HAVE BEEN A LONG BUS RIDE HOME FOR THE CUBS. LOU WAS ON THAT BUS!

Nice series of shots. And I might add, very clear when you blow them up. Good job

yes, this was a good game. much better than tuesday's game. that kid had to be a relative of one of the players, he was not a bat-boy. I didn't know they allowed this but I guess in spring training it's OK.
I also enjoyed the way the pitchers practiced just off on the sidelines, not in a bullpen. this is a lovely, homey, fields of dreams ballpark. I hope it never goes away.
