LAMM AT LARGE: Baseball Isn’t The Same

todayJuly 14, 2022

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: In State Rivalries Go Deep

It's usually difficult to get excited about college basketball in Florida. No school in the state would ever be compared with the blue blood programs. But several state schools have had their moments. None more so than the Gators, who won back-to-back national titles in '06-'07. The Seminoles lost in […]
