Been a long winter – spring is in the air – although Ole Man Winter is still hanging on around most of the country – today will be opening day and home opener for twelve teams. Last night the season began with Houston Astros hosting the Texas Rangers. On Tuesday, the remaining teams will have their opening games.
It is also the time of year that other organized baseball and softball begin their respective seasons to include my all-star grandson Jake (AKA “Mini Quaz”) out in Sumner, Washington. Jake is a very talented baseball player and has dreams of play in major leagues. I for would think he has a good chance of making that dream come true.
Last year was a magical and exciting year for the Washington Nationals – and that is saying something in the die-hard Football town. Young Bryce Harper (National League Rookie of the Year) put a spark into the community and fellow teammates. We are hoping for another wonderful baseball season.
