Thursday 13- Baseball Season Is Near!

This week pitchers and catchers reported to their Spring Training camps. HALLELUJAH! The start of baseball season is getting closer. For my Thursday 13 post, I decided to post 13 gifs that sum up my reaction to the start of baseball spring training (most importantly, spring training for my Texas Rangers). :)

1. I just want to high five everyone!

2. I can't contain myself around my baseball friends

3. I have no control over my balance I'm so happy!

4. When I see the updates the Rangers have made at the Ballpark this winter

5. I can't wipe the smile off my face while reading baseball articles

6. What I want to tell the "experts" who criticize my team

7. Tears of joy when I see pictures of players arriving at camp

8. Reuniting with my Twitter peeps who disappear during the off season

9. The need to start hugging strangers

10. Walking around dancing like this

11. Or dancing like this

12. I feel my life has meaning again

13. What I want to tell all my non-baseball friends who just don't understand 



  1. Hello Rachel. So good to know you through your profile on the blogger and the blog post. I am glad to stop by your blog post and know your love to the game. I too love games but some how feel boring with this game. I am from India and we have Cricket which is a similar game which has a pitch, stumps and a hard ball. The ground is huge. Well am blessed and feel privileged and honored to get connected with you because of who you are in the Lord Jesus Christ and your love for Him. I am a Pastor from Mumbai, India and I love to get connected with the people of God around the world to be encouraged, strengthen and praying for one another. I have been in the Pastoral ministry for the Lord 36 yrs in this great city of Mumbai a city with a great contrast where richest of rich and the poorest of poor live. We reach out to the poorest of poor wth the love of Christ to bring healing to the broken hearted. We encourage young and the adults from the west to work with us during their vacation time. We would love to have your come with your friends to work with us during your vacation time. I am sure you will have a life changing experience. My email id is: dhwankhede(at)gmail(dot)com and my name is Diwakar Wankhede. Looking forward to hear from you very soon. God's richest blessings on you, your family and friends. Also wishing you a blessed and a Christ centered New year.

  2. Nifty selection of images. Your excitement is obvious. Not shared by me, but obvious. Good luck to your Rangers.

  3. Great images. The only baseball I ever watched were the little leagues my nephews participated in, but I know people love their games. I am glad you have something you are passionate about.

  4. Ha, ha! I love the GIF of Prince tripping...I miss him. He was awesome when he was a Brewer but they tend to get rid of all our good players. :|

  5. Great gifs! Your excitement matches my own for my NY Mets! I am so happy it is baseball season again! Good luck to your Rangers :) ~Lori~

  6. HOORAY for baseball!!!!!! I with you am SO glad baseball is back.
