Your Saturday Baseball Post

It’s Saturday, and there are under three weeks until Opening Day. You know we’re getting close when I have set the home run alerts on my phone in spring training. So now my phone goes off all hours of the day and night and it’s not really a text message. It’s some random Joe Schmoe hitting a home run.

I’ve been slacking a bit here because of my work over at Dodgers Nation. Check it out if you are bored. That said, I’ll pick up the pace here soon on Diamond Hoggers. We will not go silently into the night here at DH headquarters.

Your oldies song of the week that should be played at a ballpark loudspeaker nearest you is one I heard yesterday on the way to the state wrestling tournament at the Schottenstein Center here in Columbus.

You also know you’re getting close to baseball season when March Madness and the State Wrestling tournament hits. This was always the time of year I played my opener in high school and college baseball. It was really a happy time of year. I miss getting tendonitis.

So go and enjoy your Saturday. It’s the best day of the week, and we put the flag at half mass with this post all season long to salute the greatest sport on earth.

Thank you for your continued support of Diamond Hoggers.
