|The clackers have come out in Salem.|
|My buddy Diana Christapulos.|
Yesterday, it moderated to about 50 degrees in a bright sunshine at game time and the Sox said, "Play Ball" before an enthusiastic gathering of school kids, who were given those damn clacking tubes as they entered the field.
|Your classic baseball shot.|
Anyhow, the season's on and, for me, whether or not the team is any good is completely irrelevant. This is a social event, one where you can chat with your friends without the game interfering too much (though the powers that be could turn down the music quite a bit). And they could moderate the food and drink prices (I find it interesting that water and beer both cost $4).
|Water and canned beer each costs $4. These are club prices. Other vendors are more expensive.|
|That's my pal Mike Ashley keeping up via cell.|
|This old boy was pushing the season a smidge.|
|Kids bring the ball park to life.|
