Back on the East Coast, I left work about 6 o’clock tonight and came home to make dinner and listen to a ballgame. But to my chagrin, I was home too early for our national pastime.
The first games weren’t starting until 7:05 EDT, so I had to prepare the evening meal without a baseball backdrop. I’m sure I’ll adapt, but one of the joys of grilling on the West Coast most evenings was having a ballgame available on the radio or, perhaps more accurately the last couple of years, on the mlb.com app.
I’ve noted previously that I think the Pacific time zone is the best for baseball fans, but that may not be the case for everyone. If you live in Eastern time and work into the night, there’s a good chance you can catch a late game on the West Coast when you get off work.
All of this is my way of reiterating that for a baseball fan, the game is part of life.
