I love baseball season. Sunny blue skies, warm afternoons, and the crack of the bat. (It sounds cliche I know.) There's nothing quite like watching the Cardinals play in Busch Stadium.
I'm sure it has something to do with the fact it coincides with summer.

Many of my summer nights growing up were spent on the softball field with my friends. I grew up in a small town so our little ball fields were the place to be.
Now that I have kids of my own I get to watch them learn the ins and outs of the game. I love watching a grin grow when Orran gets a piece of the ball or when he makes a play.
I love watching the boys of summer. Especially my own.
