We can all pretty much agree that baseball is a big part of our lives, and for 364 days of the year we’re either watching baseball or waiting for the Hot Stove to heat up and give us baseball news.
However, this particular day reminds us that there’s so much more than baseball. Today we’re reminded that family is important, and that the most important part of this day isn’t about the presents. It’s about spending time together as a family, telling stories of the good and bad that happened throughout the year. It’s about cherishing the moments that we spend together and looking back on them for years to come.
It’s about telling those around you that you love them, and letting them know that they’re appreciated. It’s about starting new and continuing old traditions. And most importantly…it’s about burying the baseball hatchet just in case there’s a Yankees / Red Sox rivalry within the family (this is from personal experience).
Use today to do something nice for someone, but don’t stop after today. Do good every single day of the year. If you can, give back to those less fortunate. Make someone’s day, make someone’s year, and make someone’s life. It’s the season of giving, and trust me, it’s a gratifying feeling to give.
On behalf of everyone at Bronx Baseball Daily, I would like to wish you a Merry Christmas. And for those that don’t celebrate Christmas, have a Happy Holiday.
Stay warm, stay safe and stay tuned. Because we are one holiday closer to Spring Training on Valentine’s Day.
