LAMM AT LARGE: Baseball Isn’t The Same

todayJuly 14, 2022

Background
I keep telling everyone what a big baseball fan I am. I do love the sport going back to my childhood. I vividly remember the thrill I got when I got a Mays or Mantle or Kaline card for my penny. I also remember how bad the bubble gum was that came with the card.
Now I fear I’m a fraud.
I was anxious for the MLB all-stars to be named. But much to my surprise I didn’t recognize a third of the names on the list. I counted 20 players I’d recognize if they walked in my door. There was another15 to 20 names I knew.
But with another 20-plus names, I drew a blank. They could be international soccer players, golfers, tennis players or members of Brazil’s Olympic basketball team.
How could that be for someone who’d rather watch a baseball game than an NFL game. We talk about how golf and basketball have become global sports.
You can add baseball to that list much to my sorrow.

LAMM AT LARGE: An Unfamiliar Win Last Sunday

You may not have recognized what you saw last Sunday at TIAA Bank Field. The team wearing and white-and-black uniforms with the Jaguars logo on it's helmets hadn't been seen in years. QB Trevor Lawrence was efficient, not great. Ditto for every offensive position unit. The defense was great. Five take-aways, […]
