It’s Earth Day. And I didn’t buy you a gift. Drat, I always forget.
Baseball hasn’t forgotten, however, and it’s doing a lot of stuff in honor of the occasion:
The Indians and Twins will wear green caps during their game Friday night at Target Field; the Mariners will introduce a new environmental mascot called Kid Compost; the Reds will host a major e-waste drive; and the Pirates will host an energy-free day at PNC Park.
I’ve been to PNC Park. From what I can tell it’s always an energy-free zone. Hey-O!
Seriously, though, I like it when companies try to raise awareness of the problems facing our environment. Even the ones who cut down a bunch of trees recently because some rich people complained that they spoiled the view.
OK, this time really seriously: check out the article at MLB.com to read about what teams are doing for Earth Day. And then, to the extent that the measures are practical and useful, demand that they do that sort of stuff all the time.
And for cryin’ out loud, get a bike.
