18 August 15

BASEBALL! "The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good and that could be again." (From "Field of Dreams," spoken by Terence Mann to Ray Kinsella,) Last night our family celebrated baseball at a game where the Lexington Legends beat the West Virginia Power 4-2. One baseball star born on this date was Roberto Clemente (1934-1972).
