My list of things to do this summer include work in my profession, yard work and of course baseball. The Atlantic League of Professional Baseball (Independent Baseball) and The Eastern League (MiLB) are in full swing. Since the start of the season, I have attended about ten Long Island Duck games. It’s been fun! The team is doing well, despite losing about nine pitchers signing contracts with various Major League baseball teams. I always feel like a kid again. The sunshine, the roar of the crowd and having a baseball thrown to me makes for a wonderful event! My annual visit to the Richmond Virginia this year, takes me again, to see Richmond Flying Squirrels baseball. This year is a little different. They are hosting the Eastern League All-Star Game. This will be only the second one I have ever attended, the first was in 2018 when the Long Island Ducks hosted the Atlantic League All-star Game. The Flying Squirrels are hosting a four day event 2019 All-Star Celebration, from Sunday, July 7 at Browns Island to kick off the big show. A country music event is scheduled for Monday, July 8. The Home Run Derby is on Tuesday, July 9 and the All-Star Game on Wednesday, July 10. In-between activities will include enjoy other sites of Virginia and enjoying the company of a very good friend. While this will be my only vacation this year, I will be enjoying the rest of the baseball season watching Long Island Ducks baseball. Until next time, my friends, enjoy your summer!
