Discovering Weyburn (And How I Remembered That Baseball Rules)

Baseball...ah me. How hath I forgotten thou? Verily, how??
Shakesball FinalBeats Me. -Shakespeare


It's been years since I've been to a baseball game. So yesterday, when Steven Wilson (of Magic 103 newsroom fame) invited me to come help in the sound booth and take in a game, I had to accept. And I am so glad I did.

Growing up, I was a part of the baseball culture in Outlook. I played softball for years (a couple of which were spent as a pitcher with a downright bizarre throwing style), I went to tournaments on the weekend, and I had crushes on all of my brother's baseball friends. It's always been a sport that's appealed to me.

But when I moved to Saskatoon, it became hard to engage with baseball. Unless you know a ball player personally (I didn't), or play it (again, I didn't), or at least have a friend to go to games with (again, no dice), you can't really casually watch ball. At best, it's a lonelier experience than a ball game should be. At worst, you look like a creep.

CreepsPictured: What you DON'T want to look like at a ball game.

So, yes, for numerous reasons it's been years since I've been to a game, and I feel like I've returned to the light.

Tuesday Night LightsThis time, literally.

As with everything in this blog so far, it's all about the vibe, the energy of the experience that is so appealing. And baseball has such an accessible, friendly energy to it. It's an exceptionally communal sport--it developed historically in close-knit rural communities, after all--and it's hard not to latch onto that feeling at a game. Even as a newcomer to the community, I felt swept up in the conversations around me, the familiarity between the attendees, between the attendees and the players. Even the way the players attend to their own field beforehand--baseball is a relaxed sport. It's settled in, like an old comfy sweater. Sure, there's action, and some of it is spectacular! But after each big play, there's time for talking and room for revelry. And after a few years in a fairly disconnected city, being able to tap into a sense of community and comfort with such ease...it's doing wonders for my mental health.

Suffice to say, the Beavers have a new fan!
