So Much Baseball …


keep-calm-and-watch-baseball-13…so little time.  I know I complain about this every year, but there is SO much going on right now it’s really hard to get anything accomplished at my day job. Here’s a rundown of what’s happening this week:

  • Gio Gonzalez – Gio Gonzalez (my favorite Nats’ player) – is signing autographs TONIGHT at the Modell’s in Capitol Heights, Maryland (from 6 pm to 7 pm – get there by 5:30ish to get a number in line, or however they are doing it).
  • The Frederick Keys home opener is TOMORROW night. They are giving away not only a magnet schedule, but a calendar as well (this seems to be happening throughout the week). For a donation of $10, you can also pick a Mystery Ball – autographed by “minor leaguers, Major League Baseball Players and more!”
  • The Potomac Nationals‘ home opener is also tomorrow night. Even if I had the time off to go to the games, I couldn’t see both!
  • RIGHT NOW the Orioles are playing the New York Yankees in New York.  Tomorrow, the game also starts at 1 p.m. Why are the Yankees torturing me this way?
  • That Nats are in town playing the Marlins, Tuesday through Thursday.  And Gio’s pitching tomorrow. The Nats are taunting me with emails advertising “$1 Dogs.”
  • The Baysox are in town today through Wednesday. And they’re 4-0 so fare on the year. (Actually, they just announced that the game is postponed because of rain.)
  • The AFI Silver Theater and Cultural Center in Silver Spring continues their baseball film series through April 16.

And I’m sure there’s much, much more!  Right now, it’s a little too hard to “Keep Calm and Watch Baseball,” as the sign says… but I shall ATTEMPT to remain calm and stick to my regularly scheduled activities.
