Last week, we marked the Winter Solstice – the longest night of the year. From here out, the days will continue to get a little bit longer until the Summer Solstice in July.
But today’s a different sort of holiday. Dan of The Ball Caps Blog has determined that today is the Baseball Solstice – the midpoint between the end of the 2011 baseball season and the beginning of the new one. He suggests celebrating by going out and taking a photo of the nearest baseball field and sharing the image online.
If that’s not practical for whatever reason, let me suggest another option for Mets fans. Greg Prince of Faith and Fear in Flushing notes that SNY will be airing a nine-hour marathon of Mets Yearbook episodes today. What could be a better way to celebrate the Baseball Solstice than tuning in to watch some of these old highlight films?
Whatever you do, celebrate the fact that we’re just a little bit closer to baseball’s return. 🙂
