Hey Batter, batter…

National Babe Ruth DayYep. ┬áIt’s that time of year again.

Spring has sprung and with it brings sun … fun … AND … America’s Favorite Past Time.

The month of April is brimming with days associated to the sport of baseball, but there is one special day we would like to point out that will be celebrated in ballparks all over the country.

April 27th is National Babe Ruth Day.

YOu know ….. “The Sultan of Swat” ….. “The Colossus of Clout” ….. “The Great Bambino” ….. nuthin’ but Babe and the house that he built.

This day was created in 1947 to honor one of the greatest baseball players ever. It was estimated that a crowd of over 58,000 packed Yankee Stadium that day to pay tribute to Babe, who was battling cancer at the time.

This day remembers Babe and the sport which is so rich in American history. It surfaces fond memories from childhood like being on the field, running the bases, catching that fly ball or hearing the crack of the bat. It’s the 7th-inning stretch … it’s “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” … it’s hearing “PLAY BALL” at the start of a game … it’s QUite SImply … tradition.

Why not take a minute. Close your eyes and think of one of your favorite baseball memories.

It’s okay.

We’ll wait for you ……..

Welcome back!!!

That is our wish for you; visit that place whenever you need that “baseball frame of mind” or to bring some brightness into your day. And, always remember, try to remain forever young.

May your hands always be busy,
May your feet always be swift,
May you have a strong foundation
when the winds of changes shift.
May your heart always be joyful,
May your song always be sung,
May you stay forever young.
