If baseball is life, then baseball vacations are life affirming. Take a mundane, uneventful life and add a little baseball in a city or town you’ve never been to. The result is a little time to remind yourself who you are and what’s important.
Seriously. I need to do this more often. Of course it probably helped that I stumbled upon the “Life is Good” store at Houston-Hobby airport. (Good friends help too.) Generally the “Do what you like, like what you do” slogan just taunts me. Today I realized it’s just a matter of perspective.
Sometimes all it takes is a little baseball to make life good again.
