Getting Ready For Baseball Season

Getting ready For Baseball seasonWith spring training wrapping up, it’s getting to be that time of the year when baseball season starts back up.  Warmer weather, longer days and hopefully more free time mean that not only spring is in the air, but flying baseballs as well.  Whether you’re rooting for your nephew’s little league team or going off to see your favorite MLB team, there are some things you need to know for the upcoming season.  Here is a list of them, based off of an article I found online:

Baseball is going to take up some time: Don’t go to a game and think you’ll be out in an hour.  Baseball games have nine innings, which typically takes about three hours.  While some call this boring, others insist that good things just take time.  Even the players will do things to keep themselves entertained during a low point of the game.

Get to know the team you’re watching: The game is a lot more enjoyable if you know the teams that are playing.  Study up on the players and find out which one is your favorite.  And if you can bring up stats, you’ll be able to impress your baseball buddies.

Be prepared: Catching a foul ball or a home run is one of the funnest things to do during a baseball game.  Even though it’s rare, it pays to be prepared, so just in case make sure you’ve got a glove.

Don’t be annoying: If you’re having fun at a baseball game, that’s great, and getting a few $9 beers certainly isn’t wrong.  Just know your limit, and make sure you don’t become that one drunk guy in the stands who ruins the game for everybody else.

Enjoy yourself: The most important thing about baseball is to have fun.  Appreciate a good time with your friends, a couple beers and a stadium brat.
