2003 Women’s Baseball Diary, Part 2

Originally posted on June 7 2003: Baseball Diary 2003, Part 2. May 15 My arm hurt all weekend. Then again, so did my back, my knee, my neck… it has gotten cold and damp again, if you can believe that, and every part of me that has any nagging injury is aching. And the Yankees […]

May 7 2003 : Out Standing In The Field

Cecilia’s Baseball Diary 2003 May 7 2003 : Out Standing In The Field Here I am again, trying to play baseball. For those who are new to my endeavors, here’s a quick recap.

2003 Women’s Baseball Diary Repost

Starting later today I will begin at WHY I LIKE BASEBALL to re-post my diary entries from the 2003 season, when I was cut from playing part-time in the New England Women’s Baseball League and took up full-time with the Pawtucket Slaterettes, then capped off the season with the 24 Hours for Africa women’s baseball […]

Jeter the leader

Ringing In The New Season at the Stadium

I’ve been at every home opener since 2000 except 2009, which got rained out and so I drove back to Boston in tears instead of staying in the city another day to go to the make-up game. Today made up for it. My two favorite Opening Days of the past decade were in 2001, seeing […]

The 2010 baseball season kicked off on Sunday night with a gala ESPN debut. Steven Tyler of Aerosmith, Neil Diamond, and Pedro Martinez were on hand to lend star power to the evening, which featured the Yankees and Red Sox facing off at Fenway Park on a pleasantly warm April evening. Unfortunately, the game turned […]
