Time to Give Thanks

Thanksgiving is a time for family and friends but most importantly it is a time to give thanks for all of the blessings we receive on a daily basis. When you sit down with your family and friends today, take a minute to think about what in your life you are thankful for … and just think it is only 130 days until Opening Day.

From everyone at the CCO … Happy Thanksgiving

Beyond a Game by Jewel W.

It is a white ball against
a sky so blue it hurts your eyes

It is thick grass, so perfectly green

Day fading into evening
as cheers fade to silence

Soft moonlight on an empty park
Full of promise with morning light

Crack of a bat, the graceful are
flies over a wall

Little white thing, focus of all eyes

It is breathing hard in soft evening air
Running the perfect white line
To reach a base

Unending promise, untapped possibility
Beyond baseball, beyond a game
It is beauty

Quote of the Day

"There are places I remember. All my life though some have changed. Some forever not for better. Some have gone and some remain. All these places have their moments ... " John Lennon/Paul McCartney
