    Definitely excited to wake up to this news this morning! Even if fans can't go to the stadiums to see the games, it will be nice to have it back in our lives. Glad both sides came to their senses and realized working together to find a solution beat the heck out of arguing and NOT playing.

    Still hoping that a limited number of fans be allowed to watch.......even if I have to pay more.....and be high up in the stadium....would be worth it. Best regards, David

    I could get on board with that idea. Of course, the closest stadium to me is Camden Yards, and pretty sure last year - their biggest crowd would have been considered socially distance safe.

    I just heard on the news that the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown is opening on Friday. From what I gather it is by appointment only and you can only aquire tickets online.

    I'm sure that is a requirement. I talked to some friends that went to Cooperstown a week ago today and they said the town was empty and you could park anywhere you wanted which is definately not the way things are there normally in the Summer.

    There is some thought that the virus is spread through air conditioning which is why NY state is not opening gyms, movie theatres or malls this Friday as was ewxpected.. Apparently many of the Southern/Southwestern states have been hot lately and people are being driven indoors to the air conditioning to escape the heat and this is possible where the virus is spread.

    We were there on a Friday last June (the 6th) and it was busy, we got to the hall right when it opened so got to see everything without having to wait, but it was filling up later in the day. I'm thankful they can open, the shop owners need the revenue!

    I can't believe people are not wearing masks. I went out yesterday and forgot my mask, because I'm not really used to wearing it. My neighbors keep coming up to me when I'm outside and they have no consideration how close they get. I had to tell them to keep a safe distance. My son has two necessary jobs, fortunately they make him wear a mask. You would think a 30 year old would care about not getting sick. The thing is, if I get the virus, I'm probably a goner with my chronic health problems including asthma and COPD and I'll be 65 this year. I wish other people would think what there doing to others.
