Endless summer?

Your season is either winding down or over already.  When it’s over, does your bat and ball go into the garage only to be picked up next year?

What happened to endless summers and pickup games at the park?  Whiffle ball tournaments until it got hot then the river or pool followed by a home run derby into the darkness?  Over the line with your best bud and little brother?  Lefties having to go opposite field because the other guys were tired of switching for you?  Stirkeout with a tennis ball on the LL field when you were in Babe Ruth?

In this age of kid safety, endless training, one sport dedication and tournament teams, are our kids missing the most important things?  Like being a kid for the summer?

If this doesn’t bring a tear to your eye.. You have no emotions..
