Definitely have to appreciate these Saturday’s while we have them. Every year seemingly, they salt away. Now, we’re down to just a few regular season Saturday’s left before it’s all football. It’s a sad time of year in a way to be a baseball fan. Once the Pumpkin Spice Latte’s are out and the Head-to-head playoffs start in fantasy baseball it’s all over but the crying.
And we are about at that point. Except we have today, and right now to savor it just a little longer. Like Vin Scully famously said in For Love of the Game, pull the summer sun up into the sky just a little longer today if you love the game.
Today’s 1980’s song of the week that should DEFINITELY be played on a ballpark loudspeaker nearest you is Almost Paradise. It’s just a bad ass tune, is it not? It is. Rhetoric.
So go and be merry and enjoy your Saturday. Be blessed. Thank you for your continued support of Diamond Hoggers, where we love baseball and the flag is always at half mass during the baseball season on the greatest day of the week. In honor of…. the greatest sport that will ever be played.
