    Gotta agree with you Joe I like the strategy behind small ball... When we were younger professional baseball seemed much more of a kids game...one that kids could go to and enjoy...today it costs almost as much to go to a game as it does to take a vacation.

    Ron: It is a pure game...at the college level...you have team mates...professionally they are associates...and players.

    I don't follow college baseball through out the season but starting with the regionals and ending with the championship game -it is fantastic. Those kids play with heart and emotion that is just not found in the pros. Like the LSU centerfielder who gave up his scholarship and told the coach -my family doesn;t need the money, give it to a player who will help us get to Omaha ( the site of the CWS). Then top seeded LSU gets eliminated in the super regionals by lowly Stony Brook. A fourth seed from the Atlanic conference that has never had a team get past the first round. Go underdogs. www.ncaa.com has the game dates and times. Most are on one of the ESPN channels.
    Womens college softball is also a great experience but they already finished last weekend.

Should graduations return to the Grape Bowl?

Lodi Unified leaders are moving Lodi and Tokay high school graduations from the Grape Bowl to the Spanos Center at UOP in Stockton. They cite limited seating, costs and unpredictable weather at the Grape Bowl. But others say graduations at the Grape Bowl are an important Lodi tradition, and one reason many supported renovating the stadium. What do you think?
