Get Out And Watch

The smell of the grass, roar of the crowd, snap of the leather and the crack of the bat. These are the sounds of one of the grandest games ever created. Baseball is just around the corner MLB pitchers and Catchers report in two weeks. College Baseball starts in about 17 days. What stories are we going to see this year. We had Arizona win the world series and Stoney Brook making the world series as the Cinderella story. Getting out to watch some games is a good way to spend time with the family while teaching the fundamentals of the game. So get your popcorn, sunflower seeds, and favorite beverage and get out and watch some exciting baseball in 2013. I have added a list of the top 30 D1Baseball Teams picked by the NCBWA.
