Why a blog about baseball rain delays? Why not?
This may be the most meaningless blog in the blogosphere, but I’ve decided to combine two of my many interests – baseball and weather, specifically rain – into one blog. Why? I’m not sure, but it sounds like fun, to me, the only person who reads this nonsense. Baseball rain outs and rain delays have always fascinated me. When I worked as a sports information director, one of my favorite stories to write was the baseball rain out story. Maybe, too, rain on baseball diamonds subconsciously reminds of growing up in the 80s and watching re-runs of the Andy Griffith Show with my Papaw during rain delays of Atlanta Braves games on WTBS. Those were great times.
