You throw the ball. You catch the ball. You hit the ball…Of course, baseball fans know that this line from Bull Durham is far from true, part of the humor of the movie and a huge part of the fun of the game. This blog is a space to talk about baseball, being a baseball fan, all of those things that make the game fun and the Angels, because they make baseball fun for me.
This is a very simple game...
I’m a book loving, copy writing, wine indulging, gourmet cooking, baseball cheering, very happily married lady on the other side of 30. I root for the Angels, read broadly and incessantly, and bake a truly decadent flourless chocolate cake. I love to laugh and have a very irreverent sense of humor.
Raised on softball games and the Dodgers, I fell completely out of love with baseball in college when, somewhere between my studies, the player’s strike and its aftermath, I stopped seeing the things I loved about the game on the field. I thought I had abandoned baseball forever until I fell in love all over again on a company trip to the Big A. The Angels play the game the way I love to see it played, small ball with a lot of heart, and I have been a huge fan ever since. I realize this is a little like growing up Catholic and realizing that you’re really more of a Protestant in your 20’s, but that’s my story.
I came to MLBlogs looking for great baseball talk and, seriously, you all hit the ball out of the park in that regard. I decided to start my own MLBlog to continue the conversation. If any of this sounds appealing, feel free to lurk or, better still, hang out and chat.
