Do you remember hanging out in the back yard and hitting a few balls with Dad, Grandpa or the neighbor kids? Remember jumping up and down and cheering your team mate on as he/she rounded third base? Life was quieter and things didn't seem as hectic then.
Kids spent hours playing outside enjoying various sports and games. That was before technology brought us video games and DVR's. Baseball was a favorite amongst both young and old and considered an American past time. All it took was a few friends, a favorite worn glove, a ball, and the wooden bat. Nothing sounded like that bat when the player connected with the ball. No plink like with a metal bat, but a good solid "crack"... and the cheering would start. Whatever happened to those special times? I don't hear the sound of neighborhood games like I used to. Maybe it is time for us "grown ups" to play a little while. Forget about the dirty dishes, the bills that need paying, and the days problems and take a few minutes for some family time. Fall is the perfect time to get outdoors. The days are growing cooler and the "Big Leagues" will soon be focusing on the World Series, so why not grab a bat and a ball and head out into the back yard. Start a family game, a neighborhood game, or just help a young player practice his/her skills. Not only is it good exercise for everyone but it's quality time that creates memories that last forever. So with the current economy and everyone feeling the pinch, stay home and reconnect with the ones you love. You'll be glad you did.
