the art of baseball

:: great handmade baseball art ::

fred mcgriff baseball coin (how i loved fred!)


alrighty. let's admit it, nicies. 
baseball's totally the best team sport, right? :) 

we sure think so at the rikrak home.
we just adore baseball. and yay to the season now upon us!

and there's such a great art to it, isn't there?
yet so many dear friends say NAY to baseball: 
"too slow" i hear
"too dull" i hear.
i shake my head at that!
i'll have none of it.

"so great" i say
"so fun" i say.
(and so happily NON-violent! yay!) 

long live our favourite summer pastime!

baseball: yay or nay nicies?
(and yes - that IS the fabulous blue jays vintage 
uniform font up there. GO JAYS!)

    You've got a diamond. You've got nine men. You've got a hat and a bat and that's not all. You've got the bleachers, Got 'em from spring till fall...

    2. Fred replaced my fave Willie Upshaw. I continue to hold a grudge ;)

    3. oh goodness yes! willie was wonderful. remember wille & tony fernandez & george bell & jesse barfield all at once on those glorious 80's teams? wow.

  3. Yes, we like baseball here too!! :) We are a split household here...between the phillies and the not so good orioles. If you need a little baseball decor? could always make a baseball pillow
    to rest your head on...that is one of my husband's favorite things to baseball and drift off for an "accidental" nap ;)
