I love Lehigh Valley IronPigs baseball. I’ve been a season ticket-holder since the first game in 2008 with the Philadelphia Phillies. I miss very few games during the course of the season (more than usual this year because of the ridiculous weather, unfortunately).
There’s not a more beautiful ballpark in Minor League Baseball than Coca-Cola Park. There’s no finer front office staff in MiLB than the IronPigs’ nor are there friendlier seasonal employees. And each year, I am privileged to watch a collection of men of varying ages, interests, abilities and ethnicities come together and play as a team. Folks, that’s what it’s all about and that’s why the IronPigs are the hottest entertainment venue in the Valley these days.
I’ve always had opinions about everything. Just ask my wife; she’ll tell you. Baseball is no different. I see things — some things that I like, some things that I don’t. I also try to see the future as I want it to be. Welcome to My World is how I vent, how I praise, how I dream about IronPigs and Phillies baseball. What it isn’t is a daily play-by-play regurgitation of last night’s game. Sure, I may talk about last night’s game, but only in the context of the issue I’m venting about. So even though I’ll be posting frequently, don’t look for my blog every day, or after every IronPigs home game.
The way I look at it, Welcome to My World is really the start of a conversation with my readers. I want to hear what you have to say about the issues I bring up. I want your ideas, opinions, hopes and dreams. Let’s give Reuben some other perspectives to think about!
