Dreaming Of A Season

Winter chills and unblossomed fields cover the earth, a virus runs rampant throughout the land. Canceled activities, sick people see hardships and suffer. Questions asked about what is going on, what’s happening, turmoil and grief go hand in hand. There is hope. Prayers and positive vibes constantly being shared by many.

One activity that remains constant in many minds is the hope of a baseball season, social gatherings that bring relief and joy, even if only for a few hours.

Baseball memorabilia/collectables/hobby

The last year has been one year to remember. I managed to occupy my mind with something different, something out of the ordinary for me.

Hobbies are nothing new nor out of the ordinary for many of us and I took time to experience the wonderful world of collectables and memorabilia. Baseball memorabilia was the central theme. It was the highlight during difficult times.

Much of what I collected, I learned from a good friend. Basic things like what to look for, how to gauge the quality and price of items, a little about bidding or making an offer, and online shopping for what I was looking for. It’s been an amazing journey. I was able to stay within my price range, make interesting purchases and learn a lot about collecting. It’s been much fun as well. That was also key, enjoyment without obsessing or having buyers remorse.

The images posted here are a small part of my collectables. I hope this inspires the reader to enjoy things they like to do during their free time and inspires them to find a positive outlet in their lives.

Somerset Patriots-Goodbye Atlantic League, Hello Minor League

Here is the latest information on the Somerset Patriots move from The Atlantic League of Professional Baseball to the New York Yankees Double A farm system.
While some might think the Patriots sort of “sold out” and abandoned the Atlantic League to move up, others might think the move an entirely sensible move.
I’ll let you, the reader, form your own opinion.
