Take me out to the ball­park

The Bowie Baysox base­ball team is a nearby site for en­joy­ment, sup­port­ing a team, and just be­ing present as th­ese play­ers show what they can do on the field. There are op­por­tu­ni­ties for ev­ery­one to par­tic­i­pate when peo­ple are se­lected from the stands to come down and show just what they can do. Spe­cial par­tic­i­pa­tion is for chil­dren when they have them com­pete with one an­other in sev­eral events. Some race, some throw the base­ball, some try to catch the ball. They have lots of fun and the au­di­ence en­joys see­ing th­ese chil­dren en­joy a day away from school as they have a day at the ball­park. I was at the game on April 13 for the Base­ball in Ed­u­ca­tion/STEM Day which started at 11:05 a.m. with the sta­dium full of stu­dents. And it was just won­der­ful to see both boys and girls run­ning from their seats climb­ing over the seats with gloves on their hand try­ing to get the foul ball that had come into the stands. And they were en­joy­ing their snacks and drinks as they made noises to sup­port the home team. And, some even wore T-shirts, hats and gloves for their team. The Baysox lost as the score was Erie, 4, and Baysox, 3. There are games that are played dur­ing the day, at evening time as well as on Sun­days. And, there is plenty of free park­ing.

April 22 is Earth Day and April 29 is Ar­bor Day. Did you know that plant­ing a tree will help fight global warm­ing as trees “take the car­bon diox­ide from the air and re­duce the need for heat­ing and air-con­di­tion­ing (both sources of car­bon monox­ide).” Trees in your yard can in­crease the value of your home by 15 per­cent or more. And, birds just love trees. It is so won­der­ful just to hear the sweet sounds they make.
