It’s shaping up to be a pretty slow day, so let’s just keep watching videos, OK?

Watch this one from the first run scored in the Royals-Jays game last night.

It’s basically a replay of every single game I played in from the age of 7 through the end of my baseball career at the age of 15.  And yes, I was a catcher, so I not only started every play like this, but I had a great view of it too.
