I took today’s photo after watching a Swallows game in Tokyo at Meiji Jingu Stadium (明治神宮野球場). I think I was in the Gaienmae Station. Is anyone familiar with that station? Am I correct in that guess?

Happy birthday, Miguel Cabrera!

Thirty-something years have passed, yet here we are all still.

Magical season

Easy call

@RADickey43

R.A. Dickey has been extremely mediocre during his 16 years in major league baseball. He’s a .500 pitcher with an ERA a bit above 4. In 2012, however, he had a season that was anything but mediocre. He won the National League Cy Young award by a landslide.

He came into the game, pictured above, with an 11-1 record and 2.00 ERA. He was on a roll, having won his prior 9 games–3 by shutout. He had struck out 25 batters in his prior two starts, and at least 8 in each of his prior 7 starts.

This game, against the Yankees, did not go his way (other than this score of his). The Mets lost, although Dickey didn’t take the loss. He rebounded, though, and threw a shutout in his next outing.

Two days until opening day

My random, desktop image of the day happened to be this one. Perfect timing.

This image gives me hope that I’ve learned something along the way with photography. I took this six years ago, and it would have come out much better today. What was I thinking using settings like f/22 and 1/13 for shutter speed?

Happy birthday, Dale Murphy!

My favorite ballplayer as a kid, not on the Oakland A’s, was Murph. I just missed him when I went to Atlanta a few months ago, and I haven’t seen him since I was a teenager, but in some ways he changed my life forever.
