Welcome to Awakenings

Life IS history in the making. Every word we say, everything we do becomes history the moment it is said or done. Life void of memories leaves nothing but emptiness. For those who might consider history boring, think again: It is who we are, what we do and why we are here. We are certainly individuals in our thoughts and deeds but we all germinated from seeds planted long, long ago.

Who, What, I Don't Know

Baseball! Definitely all American...the first of the American Classics! History is filled with pages upon pages of stories about the GREATS who fulfilled their destiny in the sports arenas of baseball. George 'Babe' Ruth, Hank Aaron, Lou Gehrig, Willie Mays, Jackie Robinson are just a few names that readily come to mind.

The earliest days of baseball in America span the period of time from 1840s-1867. The popularity of baseball showed tremendous increase just before and right after the American Civil War.

Let's play baseball!

Thank you, Marilyn @Serendipity for reminding me of probably the most famous comedy bit of all time!  Per Marilyn, "Abbot and Costello at their funniest. They run this at the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown on a continuous loop. It’s that good."
