The theme for this months Columbus, OH flickr meetup group is "Spring", anything that shows spring is here. I kind of thought a picture of home plate from a baseball diamond no doubt represented that. I think this actual home plate is even more convincing with how it is still covered up with some dirt and hasn't been used in an actual game yet. It's almost begging to to get swept off and used for a game. Soon enough it will be cleaned up and will have blossomed into a nice flower, I mean plate.
I have to be honest that I never played on a baseball team as a child growing up. I did however play in an organized softball league as a kid. I'm not sure how that happened, but it did. I never thought twice about it back then, but now it seems kind of strange. Not that I'm all macho and stuff, but how and the heck did I join a boys softball league? It makes a for a good story at least. We sucked by the way. I know we wore purple but I couldn't tell you our name for the life of me.
