Today is Opening Day, and the Analog Kid will be spending it in Section 32 at Globe Life Park (I really hated typing that) watching the Rangers and the Phillies. The Rangers may be my favorite team now, but I grew up a Dodgers fan and nothing in baseball is as sacred to me as Vin Scully. My grandfather engineered his radio broadcasts before I was even born, and yet Vin is still going strong. The man is a national treasure.

When I was a kid, I always had my transistor radio tuned in to Vin and his partner, Jerry Doggett. Every broadcast opened with “It’s A Beautiful Day For A Ballgame,” and I can’t think of a more appropriate way to start off the season.

Play ball!

About The Analog Kid

"I'm 5-foot-8, 123 pounds. I have, uh, brown hair, blue eyes. I enjoy surfing, backgammon and men who aren't afraid to cry."
