Mid-40s Again, 40% Chance Of Rain -- Sounds Like A Beautiful Day For Baseball

Over 40,000 turned up yesterday for the Indians’ opener in weather conditions that will be basically mirrored today. Seems as if there isn’t any reason to not have 40,000 again.

Of course I am being facetious. If this was 1996 there would be a sellout today. But this is not 1996.

Even so, bleacher seats for the rest of the season are only ten bucks. That’s not a bad deal for a really good seat. And Progressive Field is a beautiful facility.

If the team is not up to the standard set by the Indians of the mid- to late-nineties…don’t let that be your only reason for staying away. It is baseball season, and any game you might go to could see someone hit four home runs, or someone throw a no-hitter or a perfect game. Maybe there would be a triple play.

If something like that happened, wouldn’t you regret not having been there….

…when you had the chance to be?
