Then, last year happened.
Last year, I got the MLB.com At Bat app for my iPhone. Because of that app, I had access to baseball pretty much all the time. I watch streaming games on the phone. I read news articles. I studied box scores. I watched video highlights. I listened to live streaming games from both the home and visiting teams. I really started getting into baseball.
Last year, I went to my first major league baseball game since high school. (It was a Cubs game. Yeah, the home team was the Nationals, but I was going to see the Cubs.) I went to more minor league games last year than I have gone to in all of my other years of living combined. Last year, I got a game-played baseball from one of the Durham Bulls games, where they were competing for the championship of the AAA International League. Then I got it autographed by the president of the league.
Last year, I taught myself how to score baseball. It made going to games even more enjoyable. I taught a friend how to score games, too.
Then the World Series came and went.
Then it was the offseason. *sigh*
Spring Training is almost here, though. MLB.com has a countdown on their front page. Six days and change.
It's just around the corner, and I'm really excited for it to begin.
