My dad's side of the family is definitely a baseball family. My grandpa is in the ND baseball hall of fame and his brother in the softball hall. My grandma threw the first pitch when my hometown hosted the state Babe Ruth tournament when I was a kid. We love baseball and my husband does, too.
We're Twins fans (ok, we probably are pushing the boys in that direction!). In the NL we cheer for the Brewers.
I'm doing today's post before yesterday's because I need to be on the computer for that one, but what I'm saying in a lot of words is that I'm so grateful the boys love baseball (at least so far)!
We just returned from an hour at the field a half a block away. I'm not a mom who loves playing all that much but if people are behaving and the baby toddler is somewhat safe, I could pitch for quite a while.
I don't know if it's still considered America's pastime, but baseball is definitely our family's favorite pastime.
