With the insane heat of the summer only a memory and autumn leaves cascading down, October bliss brings lovely days and the World Series.

October brings relief and the grace of baseball – no chains to measure distance, just the crack of baseball bats, balls bouncing into the hands of eager fans and the best mini-series of the year.

We live in a world of increasing chaos and daily violence. But a few hours of America’s favorite past time, seems a lovely escape. Tradition has its place.
