Because This Is Your Life

There were three of them.

And even though they’re still physically standing…they’re gone.

When there…

It was a place families brought their children…

A place that brought a community together…

A place that had what sounded like an air raid siren go off at 6pm every night…still to this day.

And a place that is today missed by those who lived there.

What I’m talking about are the baseball fields that I used to play little league baseball on.

In fact…

They’re the fields that all the kids who lived in my housing development where I grew up played baseball on…but no more.

I just recently found out that the Madison Park Little League is long gone. It was taken over by mostly people from out of town…who did away with the little league.

And with it a tradition that was started back in 1955.

After I heard about this…I was surprised…because here you have a housing development of a little over 700 houses…that has its own church….it’s own elementary school…it’s own first aid rescue…it’s own fire department…and it’s own little league.

Yet…

The church was refurbished…as was the elementary school…the fire department next to the baseball fields is still there…but the little league was let go.

And all of this had me thinking about keeping the tradition alive…not just with the little league I played 6 years in that’s no by Savings Addon022 “”>more…

But with by Savings Addon022 “”>life in general.

With these thoughts the question that came up was…

How can you bring the tradition back to your life?
