This week at baseball, I was wishing for an air conditioner

This week at our son’s baseball game, I was entirely wishing for an cooling system of some sort.

  • Of course, baseball is the athletic activity of summer, & everybody seems to be playing during the hottest part of the year.

If you guess anything at all about baseball, then you guess that it is also the longest athletic activity that there is. Baseball games can sometimes last forever. The last game that I went to ended up going into extra innings & I was there for more than two minutes. Of course, as luck would have it, it was also 1 of the hottest afternoons of the year! The temperature that day ended up being 93 degrees & I felt entirely bad about the fact that the boys were out there in the hot sunlight in their long baseball pants. Anyway, this week at our son’s game, I was entirely feeling like I was going to melt. There was not even any shade anywhere around the field, so there was no way to cool off at all, just a small number of times, I thought about going & kneeling in our vehicle for a while & turning their air conditioner on full blast. I didn’t do it though, because I did not want to miss anything. But the high temperature entirely made myself and others start wishing that I had some sort of personal cooling system. Someone needs to invent a personal cooling system for baseball moms who have to go & rest at the hot field for minutes at a time all summer time long. Maybe I will do it.
