Vin Scully

Major League Baseball Teams each have an announcer who regularly broadcasts games for their home radio or TV network.  There have been many well-known baseball sportscasters over the years, but none who have been with a team as long as Vin Scully.  Known as the Bard of Baseball, Vin Scully has been the Voice of the Dodgers through six decades.  This year, at age 87, Vin begins his 66th year as the broadcaster for the Dodgers. Here is his story written by HubPages author Ellen Brundige, which she calls the Vin Scully Fanpage.

Randi of Duke & Duchesses created a fun dessert that would make a great 'treat time' for after a Little League game or for a baseball-themed birthday party.

Randi's Baseball Cupcakes were done by baking a pan of cupcakes, frosting them in white frosting, then using Skittles to form the laces, placing them side by side on the frosting.



Baseball Flip Flops Flower Tutorial

For the baseball mom or any fan, create a cute pair of flip flops with a flower design made from baseballs.

All you need is a pair of flip flops (new or old), 2 baseballs (anyone with kids seems to have a bunch of old ones around, or you can buy some new ones), an X-Acto knife and glue.  The 'how-to' instructions are in a YouTube video on the crafty post by KidPep, a website for Crafts, DIY and More.


The technique used for the baseball flip flops can also be used for a Baseball Hair Bow with the video on the KidPep website.

    1. Yep, it's my favorite time of year, Barbara. LOVE baseball season. I've never been to the Skydome/Rogers Center in Toronto. Wish I had when I lived across the lake (Ontario) from you in Rochester, NY. :)

  6. I used to love softball, but never felt comfortable with hardball. I'm afraid I'm not much of a spectator, either. My son used to love collecting the baseball cards, though. The baseball cupcakes are cute.

  9. Never been much of a baseball fan. I would rather watch a school ball game than watch it on tv.
