Favorite Spring Sport: Baseball

Spring has taken a while to catch hold this year.

Here is the view of a local baseball field the night before the league's first games the last week of April.


Here is a view of players with a pile of snow in the foreground.


Finally this week we a nice night for baseball, only five games and two weeks into the season.
A week prior to this game, we froze in damp 40 degree overcast weather that ended in a light rain. Everyone was frozen before the third inning.


At this game, it was warm with no wind. The bugs were starting to show up, but they weren't biting. There was a great view of the Sheepscot River.

Spring baseball in Florida is probably far warmer, not to mention a longer "season."
But you really can't play baseball in four seasonal weather events in one season except in Maine!
Snow, rain, freezing, or buggy!
