WGRD will be helping the Whitecaps celebrate the beginning of another baseball season here in West Michigan.  Join us at the Whitecaps home opener this Sunday at 5/3rd Ballpark because for many of us, Opening Day is like a holiday or an important annual celebration, similar to an anniversary. Opening Day doesn’t quite have the same feel as the Super Bowl, or the NBA Finals, but it’s not an ordinary game in a long season.

It’s a day where hope is renewed and fans wish that their team starts off the season on a winning note and on THAT note, a few of my favoured baseball quotes come to mind:

If a woman has to choose between catching a fly ball and saving an infant's life, she will choose to save the infant's life without even considering if there are men on base.  ~Dave Barry

Confucious say:  "Baseball wrong - man with four balls cannot walk."  ~Author Unknown

I don't want to play golf.  When I hit a ball, I want someone else to go chase it.  ~Roger Hornsby

You can't sit on a lead and run a few plays into the line and just kill the clock.  You've got to throw the ball over the goddamn plate and give the other man his chance.  That's why baseball is the greatest game of them all.  ~Earl Weaver

Why does everybody stand up and sing "Take Me Out to the Ballgame" when they're already there?  ~Larry Anderson

A baseball park is the one place where a man's wife doesn't mind his getting excited over somebody else's curves.  ~Brendan Francis

Go Whitecaps!
