Why I Love Baseball

There are so many great things about our National Pastime. But when I really think hard about it there are two early baseball memories that set me up for a lifetime of fan-dom.

One: Seeing Orel Hershiser pitch in the 1988 World Series. This was my first real baseball watching experience and I loved it. I am still a sentimental Dodgers fan.

Two: This Disney short, How to Play Baseball, starring Goofy. 

I'm currently trying to brainwash instill a love for baseball in my daughter. I can't bring Hershiser out of retirement, but maybe Goofy can help me out.
