The 4th of July is that most American of holidays. It is the day we honor the birth of our nation and it also is the real starting gun for the two months of summer. Today marks the start of another quintessentially American event that is also one of the rights of summer, Major League Baseball's All Star break.
The All Star break marks the halfway point of the regular season. The cold and wet games of April have given way to the hot and sunny games of July. We know we have officially put spring and the school year behind us. Here come the dogs days of summer.
In honor of the All Star Break the next few posts on this blog with have a baseball theme running through them. I hope you enjoy them. First up will be New York City's two ball parks, but not the ones you are thinking of.
