3 Ways Baseball Heals Me

As a child growing up a St. Louis Cardinals fan in Missouri I always wanted to go to Spring Training.

Years later when I lived in south Florida, the Cardinals moved their Spring Training facility two miles from my home.

I was in heaven.

I bought Spring Training season tickets when Roger Dean Stadium opened in 1998 and I never looked back.

Even when I moved to Nashville ten years ago, I kept my tickets. Although I only get to watch one week’s worth of games each year, I still make my annual trek to Jupiter, Florida.

My Spring Training journey starts baseball’s annual healing process in me.


5 Life Rules We Learn From Baseball

I understand not everyone is a baseball fan. I am sorry for that and I pray for them daily.

Baseball takes three hours to play a game, a weekend to sort out a series, and a spring and a summer and part of the fall to unfold a season. I know this. It takes patience.

A baseball game played out under the afternoon sun or the stadium lights lives out the drama and beauty of life, so even if you are not a baseball fan, read on, because baseball teaches us about life.


How to Be a Child Again

It is that time of year again. The pitchers and catchers have reported. The Spring Training games have begun.

Baseball is back.

Rogers Hornsby, the St. Louis Cardinals Hall of Famer, once said, “People ask me what I do in winter when there’s no baseball. I stare out the window and wait for spring.”

Well, it’s spring, baseball is back, and Spring Training makes me feel like a child again!
