Baseball season is here!

Spring will officially arrive in the 'Nati on Monday are we are going to spend the weekend getting ready.
Most of you are thinking, "Well, spring has already begun. What are you guys talking about?"
We're talking baseball, hotdogs, apple pie and peanuts... get your peanuts!
We're talking about America's favorite pasttime...
baseball and the Cincinnati Reds!

The Cincinnati Reds game has historically been the first game of the season. It's a big deal here since the Redstockings are the oldest team in baseball. There is a lot of festivities planned on Monday. The annual parade through downtown, the festivities on Fountain Square, lots of food and beverages, all in a sea of red. It is hard not to get caught up in it all. The discussions and hopes of a World Series championship vibrate thoughtout the downtown area.

We plan on spending a lot of time this weekend in the backyard practicing running the bases and playing with the baseball. Perhaps a game or two of pickle will also be played.

Tinkerbell: Know what else Monday brings? NICK LACHEY!!! Cincinnati's hometown boy will be on-hand for all the festivities. Isn't he just dreamy?!?

Oscar and Tucker: Oh Tink! You are such a girl!

Here's what we boys are excited about?
They are the mascots of the Reds and are giant baseballs! We have dreams about chasing them around the baseball diamond, tackling them and chewing on their baseball heads! Gapper is the other mascot. He is like the biggest stuffie toy ever! Who wouldn't want to sink their teeth into him and play tug-o-war with his big, honker nose?

Check out that baseball bat!
Wouldn't you like to munch on that for a while?

We understand there are those doggies out there that have no appreciation for baseball, and that's okay. To each their own.
But, we do know that every dog loves to run, play with a ball, and roll in the dirt. That's what baseball is all about and that's why we love Opening Day and the Cincinnati Reds!

Have a great weekend to all of our buddies.
We're rounding third and heading for home!
(That's our tribute to former Reds player/broadcaster Joe Nuxall, the old lefthander)

Hello Baseball Fans!!!

We're nutty about baseball too and can't wait for the 6th. But, even though our Mom is from Philadelphia, and we live in the land of the Florida Marlins, we're particularly nutty about the St. Louis Cardinals -- that's where our human dad is from.

So if you come visit our blog -- please do -- you'll see lots of red on some recent posts -- but St. Louis red!!!

Wirey woofs,

Jake and Just Harry

Hi Guys
We confess to knowing nothing about baseball although mum thought Nick Lachey could be the incentive she needs!
It all looks like great fun though so be sure and enjoy the season.
We liked the idea of a parade - or was it the 'lots of food' that caught our attention!
We do like running and playing in the dirt. Bailey loves to play with a ball too so that is a good start.
lots of love
Martha & Bailey xx

Spring Training in Phoenix is now over and all the teams have returned to their home states. It's an exciting time when they all come here, cuz there are games every day and the price is right! We only know this 2nd hand,as Mommy & Pop won't take us to any games. No dogs allowed.Oh well. Have fun with Mr. Nick Lachey!
Handsome hunk he is, even if he is a bi-ped!
Smooches, BabyRocketDog

I'm not much of a baseball fan, but that giant stuffie does look like something worth keeping an eye on.


Petey said...

Hey! We didn't know all were from Cincinnati! Mommy grew up in Mariemont and followed the Reds back in the days of Johnny Bench and Pete Rose and Joe Morgan (and Marge Schott! Yikes!)

Now we live in New York City and are Yankee fans...hmmm, and guess who the Reds are playing on Opening Day???

Your pal,

Plaaay Baaaalllll! We love baseball in this house. We used to be huge Reds fans. We can't get their games now... so Go TRIBE!

My mom and dad also used to love Joe Morgan, J. Bench, and Pete Rose.
We get in our 'cliner chairs and eat popcorn and watch the games. Of course we never eat those HOT DOGS. That would be like cannibalism.
Our favorite games of the year are when the Reds Play the Indians. OHIO ROCKS!!!!
My mom is going to be in Cincinnati for a conference very soon.
I am soooo glad to know there are other baseball fans out there.
I have to go to my doctor today but we will be back by the 3rd inning. he he he
