A Late Night Softball Game


A late night softball game was going on yesterday evening during my walk in Juniper Valley Park in Middle Village, Queens, NY, my favorite local park. It was nearly 9 p.m. The sky was almost dark.

I love to watch amateur baseball. It’s a lot less expensive and less of a hassle than attending a Major League game. A great view for free. I have always enjoyed watching amateur baseball — at all levels. The intricacies and beauty of the game are still there to be enjoyed and appreciated.

Baseball seems ideally to go hand in hand with contemplation. No wonder it has inspired a lot of good writing, from Zane Grey to Roger Kahn.
