In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Vivid.”
The very first time I went to a baseball game — a real game, with a real diamond and a manicured field — the grass made me blink.
I don’t think I’d ever seen grass so green, so bright, so lush, so … vivid … as the outfield grass around a baseball diamond.
When Little League fields and ad hoc diamonds in public parks start to brown in the heat of summer it always makes me a little sad. Because every player deserves some lush vivid green grass under their cleats.
