Phillies Baseball: The Highlight of my Summer!

Guest post written by Arnoldo Acevedo
There is nothing more American than watching baseball on a warm summer afternoon. The din of the crowd, the calls of the vendors and the crack of the bat all come together in perfect harmony when I am relaxed in a comfortable chair with a hot dog and beer in my hand. For as long as I can remember, I was raised to live and die by the Philadelphia Phillies. That loyalty has traveled with me throughout the northeast. At home, at school, on vacation; chances are I have some Phillies gear on or within reaching distance in a suitcase or drawer.
It is exhilarating to be at the ballpark and take in all of the sights, sounds, and smells of a day at the game. When I can't be at the park though, I follow my Fightin' Phils wherever I am on satellite TV from No matter if I'm home or away or they're home or away, I am taking in every moment of the exciting action, and I wouldn't miss it for the world. This is especially wonderful these past few years, with the team making a series of postseason runs. Not only will I follow the club for all 162 regular season games, but I'll be on the edge of my seat as they push for another World Series title.
