On April 22nd, due to cash shortages, the corporation ceased making rent payments on the stores. If there was any public outcry over how Fisher was shortchanging his Gap employees and landlords, it eluded my attention. How many corporations across the land are giving their employees vacations at full salary during the run of the virus?

I have a 4-yr old grandson. He knows the name, number and position of every player on our local MiLB AAA team.

He attended 100 professional games before he was four. Even went on a road trip to another city, saw "his team" play a night game, a day game the following day, and on the trip home, talked his dad into stopping in another city where he saw a AA team play.

"Our" AAA guys love him. They bought him a team jersey with his name and number 3 for his third birthday.

Other teams are happy to see him when he shows up tricked out in their uniform. Some take him out on the field for warm-ups.

This boy is the future of baseball. Whether he ever gets a chance to play the game or remains a spectator, his peers will be the ones to fill the parks and pay to see their heroes.

Somebody needs to tell this to the current whiners.

Are the 3-5-year-olds going to use a ball of a different material, as far as I know, there are different types of balls and their different materials?
