The Game is on

Nothing will spell out summertime for me except baseball. I love taking my boys to the local summer collegiate league games here in Newark at the Don Edwards Ballpark, home of the Licking County Settlers.

We always arrive early to watch the two teams warming up and to get pre-game snacks. You just can’t go to a ballgame with hotdog’s and pop right?

Then the game starting ceremonies begin. The national anthem, the first pitch and the team introductions.

But by far the best part of going to a Settlers game is their connection to the community. All of the participant’s in the events, including my son’s, are local people. From the singer of the anthem, to the between inning games, and even the number one fan we’re all part of the team.
