Baseball’s return!

Spring is here again.  Thank Mother Nature!  Maine had a long, cold winter and any inkling of spring is very welcome.  It was time to make the annual trip to Fenway with Dad for the game on Jackie Robinson Day.  This year marked the 70th anniversary of that historic game.  Dad and I had another perfect day for baseball; game time temperature of 68, sun and some of the best seats I have ever had at Fenway Park.  Although, truth be told, I’d never be unhappy if I was at Fenway.  We were just off center of home plate 7 rows back from the field.  Not much of a chance for foul balls, but a fabulous way to see the game.  The opponent was the Tampa Bay Rays and the Red Sox pulled of a nail biter of a win.  I really couldn’t have asked for a better outcome.  The rain for the day even graciously held off until about an hour after the end of the game.  I’m looking forward to the coming season very much and hope to soon be back at Fenway!
