Baseball is “America’s game” as Susan Sarandon said in my all time favorite baseball movie, “Bull Durham.” And it is: AMERICA’S GAME. Yesterday was the opening day, at home, for the San Francisco Giants.
The game was lackluster. The Giants didn’t have much spark, for whatever reason. Baseball crowds, however, as a rule, are great, under any circumstances. Example: One fan I met yesterday had been to opening day with his Dad for 28 years. So hoping he could make one more. Dad died a few days ago.
For us, we were there to honor our good friend, Sharon. She died two years ago after giving her all, fighting breast cancer. She loved baseball. Good time, relatively speaking in honoring her. Nick, her husband, had a tee with Sharon’s picture on it, very sweet.
