These are extraordinary times in our country. The pandemic that is the coronavirus is minute-by-minute altering how we all go about our daily lives. Social distancing and self-quarantine are becoming the norm.
All major professional and collegiate sports are on postponement and many of us are looking to fill the void. As a blogger who writes about Minor League Baseball, my writing is on a bit of a hiatus; I have to search for topics away from the baseball diamond to write about.
The point of this is not to solicit sympathy for me but rather to start a discussion of what baseball fans are doing to fill the void. I posted this question on another site’s message board and quickly realized I am a dinosaur. The responses I got centered on computer games and binge watching TV.
I started by stating that I was planning on reading Billy Ripken’s book, State Of Play in the hopes of see what others may be reading. I also plan to search the web in order to find more baseball cards and such of my favorite Baltimore Orioles Minor League prospects.
What are you doing? Are you reading a baseball book and if so, what book? Are you watching past games on You Tube or MLB TV?
It is my hope that by sharing and discussing we can help each other, as baseball fans, get through this together.
