Baseball in Riverdale Park
Another sign of spring: baseball!
Riverdale Park with its wide flat bottomland is a great place to play sports including baseball. There are five diamonds, three west and two east, although I have seen more games played unofficially with just a hat or a piece of cardboard marking the locations of the bases.
This picture shows a mens league playing overhand fastball with a standard baseball. I sometimes find watching this more interesting than what you might get at the Skydome (I've heard that a 12 ounce plastic container of beer is now 7 bucks!) especially now when the Toronto Blue Jays are playing so badly. Better to come down to Riverdale Park where the game is just as interesting and much cheaper.
