This blog is about baseball.  I have spent over 5 decades learning about, playing, learning more, talking about and learning even more about this great game.  It has been my life.  This blog will be about how the game is played or should be played; about what’s going on inside Twins games and around MLB.

I have long held the belief that the more a person understands about the game—its intricacies, its nuances—the more he or she will like it.  It is my hope that more and more people will come to love the game as I do.

This will not be about breaking news or inside scoops or players’ personal lives.  There are other sources for those subjects.

It will be a forum for us to really get into the game.  And…since it has been my life and lifestyle for so many years there will undoubtedly be other lifestyle components that are important to me that will creep into this site periodically:  music, most certainly, food perhaps, possibly others that demand attention from time to time.

I hope you enjoy it and get something out of it.  Please let me know what you think and what you would like to know about this great game of baseball…
