Afternoon At The Ballpark

In Cincinnati on a beautiful day to watch the Reds play the Cubs. Great American Ballpark is a terrific venue, with downtown Cincinnati as the backdrop. The Reds have struggled of late, but they’re drubbing the Cubs today.

Going to an afternoon ballgame on a weekday is like an end-of-summer treat.

Spring (Training) Fever

IMG_3066I was down in Cincinnati today.  It was a gorgeous day, with bright sunshine streaming through the conference room window, temperatures touching the 60s, the mighty Ohio shimmering in the distance, and far below the covered field of Great American Ballpark, where the Redlegs play.

With such a scene, what red-blooded American wouldn’t think about baseball, and spring training?  Oh, by the way — pitchers and catchers report for the Tribe in three days.
