Play ball!

Max got a great shot of a pitch at at Cubs game at Wrigley Field today. Click to "embiggen."

"Ain't this the kind o' weather
For smackin' leather
For playin' baseball
The kind o' weather makes a man
Hit like hell!


Let's go, you sons o' bitches!
Let's see some pitches!
Let's play some baseball!

A fine upliftin' atmosphere
Bring yer children here
Teach them baseball
The game all true Americans
Do damn well!
It's like the Constitution
The Institution
Of dear ole baseball,
Where every man is treated the same!

What a...what a...what!"
