This is about the time of year where I would start heading to a lot of open gyms and getting ready for the long season ahead. Hitting indoors with a wood bat or an old bat, and starting to try to get my arm back in shape. It was a glorious and careless time of year.
It’s important to remember why we always honor Saturday here at Diamond Hoggers; because it was also the day of the week we woke up early to comb through box scores in the paper (and cut them out). It was the day that the one game of the week was one FOX 28 locally. You got to see an our of market team or two play.
And it’s still just a great day of the week.
Today’s 80’s song of the week that should be played on a ballpark loudspeaker nearest you is a sappy classic from Madonna. It’s from 1985, and debuted in the movie Vision Quest (which is a must see).
Thank you for your continued support of Diamond Hoggers. Enjoy your Saturday.
