While my love for baseball has waned as I have gotten older I will still have a Red Sox or Tigers game on at night as background noise. The length of the games and lack of action has not set in well with my attention deficient syndrome mentality. Although, there may be something to Listening to a Baseball Game That Can Help Quite Your Nerves.
Sitting in an airport today I saw a piece on ESPN that I had to get out to everyone. At one point I had planned on getting to all 30 big league ballparks. I think the last count I had made it to about 23 although about 6 of those are long gone. But Katie Russell was on a different mission when she set out to visit all 30 MLB parks this summer.
A cancer survivor herself, Russell was passed on the love of the game by her mother who succumbed to colon cancer in 2009. They had made a pact to visit all 30 parks and Russell made good on that promise at Wrigley Field in Chicago yesterday. Visit her site MLB for Mom for her amazing stories and experiences.
