After some seriously cold weather here in East Montpelier Center it’s supposed to get to 50 today.  Ah, Spring, and a man’s thoughts turn to baseball…

I woke up this morning remembering the sheer joy provided by this 4-minute highlight reel of Manny Machado fielding his position in 2012, his rookie year with the Orioles.  (Though it’s a Machado highlight film, there’s also some spectacular play at first base by Mark Reynolds, who has since been traded to the Indians.)

Watch it and feel young(er) again.  This is how I dreamed of playing on summer nights  in Baltimore in the 1960s…
