Play Ball!!!

Summer is officially here! I can hear all of your cheers through the internet! It has been a loooong winter. We were tricked into thinking Spring had come early in February, only to have it show its ugly face again in March… twice.. and then again the first day of May! Here is to sunnier days ahead!!  Along with the greening of the landscape, the ball fields have started bustling. Baseball, also known as America’s greatest pastime will bring us all out from hibernation and, in Minnesota, off the ice.

America’s Favorite Pastime

Baseball has brought Americans together since 1839 in Cooperstown, NY. Today you will see kids and adults from all parts of this great country playing ball. Go Twins!! My husband is currently our family’s ball player. He plays softball as part of a league and in a few weekend small-town tournaments. Our whole family enjoys watching, participating in the camaraderie and being apart of this great ball playing community. I played softball
growing up and was proud to watch my dad play with his friends. My girls are a little young to be in competitive leagues, but enjoy the teams they’ve been apart of. Like many families in our small town, we also support our local teams by attending games and cheering the Dragons and the local amateur team to victory. The magic, history, nostalgia and superstitions of baseball are something to be celebrated.

The Baseball Season Collection from Flags on a Stick

This year, Flags on a Stick has a wonderful Baseball Season collection to please anyone cheering for America’s favorite sport. The MatMates Doormat Baseball Season Summer is adorning my front step this season. In hopes of  continuing to spruce up my traditional milk can in a unique way, I’m following the baseball theme. I’ve filled it with wood bats, a red and white ribbon and the Baseball Season Summer Yard sign. As can be seen, it is easy gathering stuff around your house to make such a simple display with help from Flags on a Stick. To add to the baseball theme they also have this adorable new No Place Like Home Baseball Decorative Garden flag. Very modern and trend! 



I’m also excited to share my own version of a fabulous and easy to make baseball wreath I found on Pinterest to tie my front door to my summer flag and summer doormat decor. Flags On A Stick also has a variety of patriotic summer garden flags and summer house flags that can be combined with their Baseball Season collection flags for a patriotic look. The Baseball Season Collection also looks wonderful with one of our Personalized Baseball Flags, perfect for cheering on your favorite players!

Does your family enjoy participating in or watching America’s favorite pastime? Who are you rooting for this summer?
