I am lucky that my wife has really taken to baseball in the last few years. Because of this, we spend a lot of time at Target Field during the summer. Sitting there, in the hot sun, I am always amazed that I we are watching grown men play a game for a living.
The ROAD to the "show" can be a long one for many of these players. However, when that call comes to step onto a major league diamond and have the sun cast your SHADOW across a lush, perfectly mown patch of grass, it is all worth it.
