The sound of baseball is beautiful,

The bat making contact with the ball, the ball hittiing the catches mitt, the shortstop supporting his pitcher "Come on kid we have two outs lets get this done"

The umpire screaming "Striiiiike three", The manager arguing with the umpire "Ah that wasnt even close" knowing full well he is about to get tossed.

The radio broadasters classic voice dating back to the days of Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa. That same man now broadcasting the future of baseball in Mike Trout, Bryce Harper and Giacarlo Stanton.

The yelling of the hot dog vendor "Last Call Last call for hot dogs", The sound of a kid in awe at his first baseball game with his father "Daddy whos that player? Whos that one?"

Most of all the sound of the crowd chanting a players name after an incredible play "Derek Jeter... Derek Jeter"

Baseball is beautiful and the sound of a baseball game is captivating the ballpark has so much history and is the one place on earth where i feel truly free.
