Boys of Summer – Adieu For Now


November 6th, 2009 Posted 8:47 am

“Well,” Bernie says, “fourteen weeks till pitchers and catchers.” That means baseball is over for another year. Bernie’s always a bit sad for a day or so after that happens. We don’t actually go to any games or watch on TV, but we listen on the radio a lot. The sound of baseball while we’re driving is nice – love Vin Scully’s voice – although I couldn’t tell you what’s going on. That’s all right. Bernie says lots of Americans don’t really understand what’s going on, and hardly anyone understands completely, even the professional players, managers and umpires. “Let’s start with the balk rule,” he says. “Who can explain all the ways to balk?” Beats me.

Bernie’s reading a book about umpires called “As They See ‘Em,” and says it’s real good. Bernie pitched for Army till his arm blew out, but his arm still looks pretty strong to me.

Still waiting for DNA results.
