Summer Break

After some deliberation, I have decided that I’m going to take a break from blogging for the next couple of weeks.  My family and I will be moving into a new home across town the middle of next week, and we have a lot of packing to do.  Also, I am finishing up a small writing project, and doing some research (as time permits) for other future writing projects.

Meanwhile, I also think a two week break will help refresh me for more blogging in the future.  I do intend to try to continue reading the various blogs I’ve subscribed to, and I will be checking my email to keep up with those of you who I sometimes chat with.

In the meantime, let me leave you with this scene from one of my favorite baseball movies, “Bull Durham.”

A Baseball Post for Super Bowl Sunday

Here’s a little baseball video for Super Bowl Sunday.

The clip is from the movie, “The Sandlot.”

Best Scenes from Baseball Movies

Recently, I’ve been watching a lot of baseball movies.  As I’ve been viewing them, I have been remembering with great pleasure which scenes from these movies are my all time favorites.  So, of course, I decided to turn this subject into a blog post.

Today, I am posting a youtube clip of my third favorite baseball movie scene of all time.  Next week, I’ll post a clip of my second favorite, and the week after that you’ll get to view my number one favorite scene ever from a baseball movie.

I’d like to hear from you about which baseball movie scenes are your favorites.

So here comes my Number #3 Favorite Baseball Movie Scene of All Time:
