3-28-21 The start of the Baseball season is just around the corner. I do not believe there are any new ballparks this season but back in 1965 a new ballpark opened that was unlike any other. It was in Houston and was a dome, the Astrodome. It was hailed as the 8th Wonder of the World. Sadly (?) the park did not last as long as most of the Wonders of the World and has been imploded after plans to save it fell through. Catch up on the times with "MLB presents The Astrodome: The 8th Wonder of the World".

5-2-21 One of the things about baseball has always been radio broadcasts. Who doesn't remember sitting in the back yard on a warm summer evening listening to the ball game.
