From Minor League Baseball to a Major Storm

I’m sitting here in Pittsfield, Mass, right on the MA-NY border, listening to music from an iPod blasted over the speakers, trying to wash away the sounds of the pouring rain and rampant thunder around the ballpark. Suffice it to say, Mother Nature’s winning that battle. Although I’ve certainly encountered stranger things, I don’t see the game happening tonight with these conditions. First pitch is supposed to be about three hours away, but the field is doing its best Titanic impression by taking on water non-stop.

I realized just how long it had been since my last post when I saw my homepage just a few minutes ago. Once the season gets going, it’s easy to lose track of things, even when you have off-days to recover. This blog is clearly one of those things, but the newly-ended hiatus will probably be the last extended one for quite a long time.

Good things actually can come from events like this, whether it’s on or off the field. I had time to (start my) catch-up on the blog. The Tornadoes have a former relief pitcher throwing tonight and the pen’s been pretty taxed lately, so an extra off-day could really help the cause. I’m sure there are other effects I haven’t even thought about that could come into play, so I’ll play the waiting game and see what comes up.

At least I’m dry.
