Baseball Season is Back

Well, folks. It’s been a minute since we’ve posted here.

Lucky for you, I’ve missed digging into the Stubby archives for some good stories to share. And I have been craving baseball lately.

During spring training season, I’ve been getting my baseball fix by reading Ball, Bat and Bitumen: A History of Coalfield Baseball in the Appalachian South by L.M. Sutter and researching some new posts to share here. This is a great book for anyone interested the culture of baseball in Southern West Virginia during Stubby’s time.

As for me, I’m grateful to live in Cincinnati and to be able to get in some Opening Day fun. The city embraces its baseball roots of being the first city with a professional baseball team with an Opening Day parade. Yesterday was Cincinnati’s 140’s annual Opening Day Parade with 150,000 spectators.

It finally feels like spring.

Have you read L.M. Sutter’s book? Let me know in the comments.
