Take me out to the ballgame doesn't mean what it used to.

United States of America v. Barry Lamar Bonds.

Talk of Hank Aaron's chase of Babe Ruth's all time homer record filled the summer of 1974.

Our family went to a Philadelphia Phillies vs. Atlanta Braves game. Being Philadelphia, they decided not to pitch to Hank Aaron and walked him. They did not want to give him the opportunity to shatter the record in its stadium.

I remember the red of the phillies against the sharp green of the grass.
