BaseballOpening Day is March 28 and our Cleveland Indians home opener is April 1st.  Everyone is excited to see the Indians play.  Cleveland is also hosting the All-Star Game this year. It is gearing up to be a great year for baseball in Cleveland.

Before heading to the ballpark share Ballpark written by Eileen R. Meyer and illustrated by Carlynn Whitt.  Meyer tells the story of a boy spending a fun day at the ballpark with his grandfather.  The delightful rhymes will keep your child engaged and entertained.
