Opening Day     

Baseball is back.  The 100 days of summer. If your not playing baseball yourself, you need to find your team!  College, High School, Major League, Minor League, Pee Wee League, Little League.  Don’t miss the first pitch of the season.  An afternoon leaning back in the sun at the ballpark, with a cold beer and a hotdog with your team playing.  Get your caps and your gloves and go.

The Seventh Inning Stretch

In the seventh inning stretch is a time honored baseball custom in which the fans ritualistically stand and stretch before their team comes to bat in the seventh inning. This is done not only to relieve muscles that have begun to stiffen, but also to bring luck to one's team.  Now fans get up and sing “Take me out to the ball game”. 
We have no idea where and when the custom of the seventh-inning stretch began. Folklore has it that President Taft started the stretch in 1910. but we know it's at least as old as 1869, and Harry Caray is credited with singing it first at a ball game in 1971

"Take me out to the ball game,
Take me out with the crowd.
Buy me some peanuts and cracker jack,
I don't care if I never get back,
Let me root, root, root for the home team,
If they don't win it's a shame.
For it's one, two, three strikes, you're out,
At the old ball game."
