“You see, you spend a good piece of your life gripping a baseball, and in the end it turns out that it was the other way around all the time.” ~Jim Bouton, Ball Four, 1970
As most baseball fans know, opening day was this week! No matter what team you root for, the start of the season is always exciting as it brings promise of sunny days, familiar songs (you know you’re singing it), classic snacks, and great games!
The Politi house IS.A.BASEBALL.HOUSE. I played, my husband played, and it’s in the boys’ DNA. All of them love it. Even my three year old carries his glove around everywhere with him and I think I even saw it hidden under his pillow one night, so yes, we even sleep baseball, LOL. My two older sons play on two teams a piece and it’s really all we do from March through July. But please don’t mistake this as complaining. I love it. I love going to the games. I love my baseball mom friends. I love losing my voice from yelling with excitement. From the minute I thought about having children, I knew I would have boys and it couldn’t be a better fit. So, let’s play ball!
I think it’s less than coincidental then, that my MOST requested setup is a baseball setup! I love coming up with a little different twist for each one but in every one, my personal love for the sport rings true too. Enjoy!
