It’s Spring – Play Ball!

Walt Disney once said, “It seems to me we have a lot of story yet to tell.” In response, we at FirefliesBlog offer a boisterous, “Amen.” That’s the idea behind our Heritage 2 Legacy feature – offering you ideas for capturing and preserving your family stories.

Check out our newest storytelling idea – It’s Spring, Play Ball!

It’s Spring – Play Ball

In the backyard of our Beaver Falls, PA, home my brothers and I played endless ball games with neighborhood friends named Suskevich and Conley. We had multiple field configurations havingone thing in common – they were all destructive to mom and dad’s landscaping. Astonishingly, I have no memories of our parents complaining.

There was the sideways field where home plate for whiffleball games was close to a young tree dad planted. An overly aggressive swing, the only kind we approved of, pruned the branches. Then there was our straight-on tennisball pitch only layout. Home plate was elevated on the patio by the back door. The backstop was a living room wall and a high hard one rocked the entire house. A hard low one endangered the lives of mom’s petunias. Finally, there was the straight-on football field on the other half of our double lot by the willow tree.
