Swing for the Fences

“People ask me what I do in the winter when there’s no baseball. I will let you know what I do. I stare out the window and await spring.” — Rogers Hornsby

The wait is over! Forget Punxsutawney Phil and the vernal equinox; at America, the first crack of the bat marks the start of spring. The baseball season is officially in full swing, and it’s time to head to the park for bananas, Cracker Jack and, my personal favorites, Fenway Franks and Dippin’ Dots. If you are a die-hard enthusiast, pick up some merch and bring the fun of baseball to your home. Whether you would like to proudly display a treasured autographed ball collection or make a themed bedroom for a youngster, these rooms may inspire your fanfare.

The final step was the very precise setup.

Obviously, not every Chicagoan is a Cubs fan. This White Sox mural can develop with a child; in a few years when the stuffed animals proceed, the room will be just nice for a tween. The picture works nicely with the gunmetal-gray palette.

Another more subtle way to bring from the subject is via a quotation, in this instance from Hall of Famer Carl Yastrzemski. The whole quote is:

“I think about baseball once I wake up in the afternoon. I consider it all day and I dream about it at night time. The only time I don’t think about it is when I am playing with it.”
