Opening Day!



Falling on Easter, it reminds me of this:



N.B.: While it's true that a baseball has 108 stitches, there are only 59 beads in a Catholic rosary. The original Catholic Rosary did contain 108 beads, it was "streamlined" down to 59. A rosary contained 10 decades of 10 "Hail Marys" (100 beads) and 8 "Our Fathers" for 8 beads which equals 108.

"The only church that truly feeds the soul, day in and day out, is the church of baseball."

Play Ball!

  6. Yes, I was in the Show. I was in the Show for 21 days once. 21 greatest days of my life. You know you never handle your luggage in the Show. Someone else carries your bags. It's great. You hit white balls for batting practice. Ballparks are like cathedrals. The hotels all have room service. The women all have long legs and brains.
