Baseball - Billi Pod’s Plans for Saturday - Interesting Picture

Saturday==>I am happy to report to my loyal and faithful readers and followers that yesterday was an excellent day for your favorite Sunshine State blogger here in hot and humid Winter Park.

First, with multiple trips to Publix, some late afternoon walking and wandering, and his usual walking regime during baseball games, Billi Pod was able to record 5.32 miles on his WeightWatcher’s Pedometer, the best mileage in 16 days. Nice!!

Then, on the baseball scene ...

Last night in Atlanta Didi Gregorius hit a 3-run HR and drove in a career high 6 runs as the Bronx Bombers crushed the Braves 15-4. After a shaky first inning our starter, Masahiro Tanaka, settled down to hold Atlanta to 3 runs and 5 hits over 7 innings.

We remain 1.5 games behind Toronto for the lead in the AL East, however. Oh well ...

This brings us to today and ... guess what ... Billi Pod plans to be a total couch potato to watch baseball in the cool and comfortable confines of his new apartment, in front of his 42” flat screen TV.

During the afternoon it will be the Little League World Series ...

12:30pm==>Japan vs. Mexico - International Final; then,

3:30pm==>Pennsylvania vs. Texas - United States Final

Both games will be carried on ABC.

The winners will then meet for the World Championship at 3:00pm on Sunday, also on ABC.

Then, for the evening it will be ... yes ... another drum roll ...

7:10pm==>YANKEES vs. BRAVES @ Turner Field in Atlanta, for game two of the 3-game series.

On the mound for the Yankees (70-57) will be rookie Luis Severino (1-2) vs. Matt Wisler (5-4) for the Braves (54-74).

Will close out this posting with a picture I think most of you loyal and faithful readers and followers will enjoy ...
You are so very welcome.



Yesterday’s mileage==>5.32 miles (or, 11,626 steps)

Total mileage for 2015==>979.82 miles (average 4.08 miles per day)
