Baseball season this year was very long and very hot.
My son plays for a local travel team as the pitcher, and he’s really good.
My husband is hoping that he will decide to play professionally some day. I don’t know about all that, but I do know that the temperature outside during baseball season has been just awful. I felt like the weather started heating up long before it should have this year. I’m a person who loves the air conditioning during the summertime. When we are home during the summer, I always turn the thermostat way down so that the air conditioning runs almost constantly. I wish I could say the same thing about being at the baseball park! Of course, none of the baseball parks that we’ve gone to have any air conditioned areas. Every single baseball park that we watched games at was hot and had very little shade. I entertained the thoughts of purchasing a portable air conditioning unit this summer, just because I was spending so much time outside in the heat. I was miserable most of the time, even though I really wanted to enjoy my son’s baseball games. My husband bought me a cooling towel to keep on my head, but even that didn’t take the place of air conditioning. I wish baseball season was during the spring before the weather starts heating up. I feel sorry for all of the boys out there in their hot uniforms! Maybe next year I’ll buy a canopy with wall flaps and I’ll invest in a portable air conditioner. If I run the A/C inside the canopy, then the boys can come in to rest in the A/C while they’re waiting to bat!
