10: 2020 Season
It is easy to look ahead to Opening Day 2020, but it should not be something taken for granted. Having Major League Baseball as an entertainment option is simply not available for those in other parts of the country, and the world as a whole. Even in the U.S., leagues are folding, such as the Arena Football League who announced their bankruptcy filing on Wednesday.
Be thankful you can go to Citizens Bank Park and watch your favorite team play. Be thankful there is not a strike or lockout. Be thankful the Phillies go above and beyond each day to strive to represent the city in the best way possible.
Phillies baseball is a great thing. It connects everyone, no matter what demographic or background they come from. Everyone loves seeing their favorite player field their position, step in the batter’s box, launch a home run, you name it.
Baseball is like no other.
Clearly, there are a lot of things to be thankful for this Thanksgiving above life overall, and especially the Phillies. Consider if one of those things on the list went away tomorrow, and how that would change your perception.
Nothing in life is a given. Appreciate everything you know and love today, as for tomorrow who knows what’s in store.
Thank you, Phillies.
