Baseball Opening Day!!

Something that most people don't know about me is that I LOVE baseball!!  I grew up watching it with my parents, we would make a Saturday of it watching local teams or even fast-pitch softball.  In addition, my great-grandmother was a die-hard fan, I remember as a little girl her watching the World Series with her in her nursing home room.  So I'm pretty sure its in my blood.

If we had a closer MLB team, I would totally have to buy season tickets! Since we don't, I have to settle for going to games when we travel to new cities!  Lucky for me, my hubby is a good sport and we have gone to some great games!  We've been to a few Rockies games in Colorado, and last year we had so much fun at a Milwaukee Brewer's game, that we are going again this April!

And no Wisconsin baseball post would be complete without mention of Hank the Ballpark Pup who is proudly displayed on my desk at work  .

If you are unfamiliar with Hank, he is the cute little doggy the Brewer's team adopted last year at Spring Training.  You can learn more about his story here.

Spring Baseball & Dogs!  What could be better?

Play Ball!!

  1. Well, my family is a HUGE NFL fan... (the grammar will not work here!) "family are HUGE NFL fans" whatever...with baseball a close second, Go Tigers! They won yesterday btw. I've only been to one regular season game, but several Spring Training ones, great fun. They are such family-oriented fun times. Although we didn't get the Tigers' game down here in Florida, my hubby had to YouTube the homeruns (TWO!). Love your game pics. :-) I'm going to check out the dog link (shocker, me and dogs).
