Baseball is BACK, baby! The Big Leagues return TONIGHT when the Yankees take on the Nationals in D.C. First pitch is at 7 PM (EST).
I don’t know about you…but I’m BEYOND excited for the National Pastime to return and be there for us sports fans…night in and night out.
For me, baseball is like that cozy blanket that makes you feel warm and happy…it’s a friend that you can rely on.
Yeah…maybe I’m waxing a little poetic about baseball…but…like I said…I missed the hell out of it!!
Welcome back, Baseball! We missed you! Go Yankees!
