Baseball Opens! – The Affirmation Spot for Monday April 5, 2010

Today’s Affirmation:
“Winners are not people who never lose. Winners are people who never quit.

Although there were a few early games last night, baseball’s official opening day is today. Once again every major league team is 0-0 and hope for pennant and World Series title springs eternal.

Baseball has been America’s pasttime for more than 100 years. However, it didn’t have an official anthem until John Fogerty recorded “Centerfield” in 1985. This feel-good song not only evokes the spirit of baseball, but of Spring after a long cold winter.

It also repeats and repeats the universal affirmation of athletes everywhere, “Put me in coach. I’m ready to play today.” Baseball fan or not, this song is sure to pick up your day!

Stay inspired and play ball!
