Our Cincinnati Reds take the field for the 150th season as the boys of summer herald the Great American Pastime. The smell of popcorn, hotdogs, and freshly mown grass stir long forgotten memories.

A bat cracks. A foul ball into deep right field. Gloved youth vie for bragging rights, and an autograph if they hang out after the game.

Steeped in a century and a half of tradition, The Game, passed down from father to son, grandmother to granddaughter weaves a thread through the fabric of our lives. It is baseball. It has always been baseball.

Field of Dreams

“The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it’s a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good and that could be again.“
