Numbers make the world go round. Without numbers, life would be unmeasurable, unordered, unlivable. To show my appreciation for numbers, each Monday, I’ll post a picture of numbers. I know this must excite one and all!
Today’s numbers: Baseball statistics. I especially like this picture because it is a picture of the scoreboard on opening day. This was the bottom of the 1st inning at the Rockies home opener in 2011 — everyone had a batting average of 0 (since no one had batted). A clean slate. Don’t we all need a clean slate at times? A chance to start over? A chance to step up to the home plate of life and hit one out of the park? Put me in coach, I’m ready to play. My at-bat song is playing!
And on this opening day on April 1, 2011, it really was a new beginning. My grandson was born. His stats: 6 pounds 9 ounces, 21 1/2 inches.
