Play ball!

Game 1 of the World Series is tonight – Atlanta Braves versus the Houston Astros.

I am a lifelong Astros fan all the way back to seeing them at Colt Stadium in 1964 while the Astrodome was under construction. Though an Astros fan I’d rather see Atlanta win a well-played Series than see the Astros win a badly played one.

The photo is of Jose Altuve batting at (what I still call) Tiger Stadium in July 2017. I look forward to going to a game next year.

Play ball.

Baseball’s 2019 World Series starts a little later tonight. The favoured (and my favourite team) Houston Astros play the Washington Nationals. While I hope Houston wins I’d rather they lose a well-played Series than win a sloppy set of games.

Done

Charlie Morton got the job done last night, pitching four innings of two-hit, one-run relief. It was an exciting World Series, perhaps not the best, with perhaps an anticlimactic deciding game. It’s done, the Astros won. And Carlos Correa’s girlfriend said yes. 🙂

Only four months until Opening Day 2018.

 

 

 

Play ball.

I recently had the good fortune to attend a Tigers-Astros game. Although Jose Altuve – the best second baseman in the majors – went oh for four and the Astros lost 5-3, it was a decent, entertaining game and a very enjoyable evening.
