New Baseball Year’s Resolutions

10888608_870124366352537_2259918355076719978_nAs you prepare to ring in the New Year, have you thought about your New Year’s resolutions? What about your New Year’s wishes? And how many are related to baseball? The baseball writers are beginning to post their New Baseball Year’s Resolutions. Here’s just a sampling:

Naturally, I’ve already come up with my New Baseball Year’s Resolutions:

  1. Watch more baseball. Now I know this might sound a bit impossible. After all, I watch baseball all the time. But my BBFF (best baseball friend forever) and I have been tossing around the idea of setting up another screen in the Baseball Viewing Room so we can have the O’s and/or Nats on one TV while simultaneously streaming another game (you know, some lesser team like the Yankees) from MLB.TV. It’d also be nice to catch a few minor league games on MiLB.TV. And I’d love to figure out how to view some baseball from Japan or some other country.
  2. See more minor league games. Living in Bowie, Maryland, I see the Bowie Baysox, 2015 Eastern League champions, all the time. But I keep saying I want to see more of the Nationals minor leaguers in action. We make it out to Potomac to see the singe-A team a few times a year, but I really want to go to Harrisburg this year. Maybe even Syracuse. My BBFF also wants to catch a few baby Yankees games, like in Trenton.
  3. Go to Spring Training. Yes, this one’s a no-brainer. I do this every year already. But, as they say, you have to put it in writing to make sure you do it!
  4. See the Orioles at Dodger Stadium. I love my Orioles, and I love Dodger Stadium, so I’ve been waiting for this one for years! The O’s are finally gonna make a stop at the Dodgers this year and I plan to be there!
  5. See the Baysox at an out-of-town game. A dream of mine is to have the summer off and follow the Baysox around the east coast. Not as a stalker, but as the Baseball Sociologist! I’ve seen them play in Richmond, but I haven’t seen them play anywhere else. Places like Altoona and Harrisburg really aren’t that far away. This year, I need to find time to see them someplace else!
  6. Blog more. Last year was an exceptionally busy year, and I didn’t write as much as I’d like to. I’ll be sure to post more in 2016.

Have a safe and happy New Year’s Eve and a prosperous 2016!

We all need our own theme song

CW7vRcoUsAYURNcBaseball and music have long been intertwined. Who, after all, hasn’t pondered what their walk-up song should be? Taking the concept of the walk-up song one step further, the Orioles’ newest acquisition, Hyun Soo Kim, comes complete with his own theme song.

Dan from the site, a website about the Korean Baseball Organization, kindly tweeted the song for us:

Welcome to Baltimore, Hyun!
