Batter Up! Table for One

It's baseball season - that means that some normally sane and sound people in my family become wildly obsessed for the next few months. Family events can run smoothly or become highly charged depending on the baseball stats for that week. Me? I just go with the flow....I remember the "old days" when baseball was just great fun - no steroids, no strikes, no "big money deals." And you could buy a beer and a hot dog at your seat even after the seventh inning stretch. Candlestick Park chilled you to the bones - the wind was so bad that it took your breath away....ah, great fun and great memories!!!
