So, while the World seemingly falls apart in front of our TV; Tablets and iPhone screens, it’s heartwarming to know that folks in small town #Merica are doing all they can to avoid the Madness.

Baseball is America.

Well, it used to be.IMG_0212

You can make it so again by simply making the choice to attend.

Much Like, ‘we’ can all do our part in making the World a better place by simply doing the right thing. Love Thy Neighbor.

Go out of your way to show kindness; Smile more often and see if that helps.

I know this one thing for certain…’Kain’t Hurt’…
