FROM THE editor

Take me out to the ballgame — soon! To me, nothing says spring like a trip to NBT Stadium. Jennifer My husband and I gather up the kids, along with others such as the grandparents or friends of the family, Momsense and head to the ballpark to root on our hometown Chiefs. This tradition was started long ago in my famiy when I was a child and my parents brought my brother and I to McArthur Stadium to root on our team. The all-American sport of baseball comes with the feeling of springtime as you breathe in the scent of popcorn, peanuts and, well-you get the idea. Now that my children have come to expect a trip or two to see the Chiefs play, I have found a new love for the sport. Rain or shine, win or lose, we have had many memories made for our young family to treasure as we grow older together, and I know my children will bring their chidren to the park someday. But, enough with the sentimental side of things. Let’s hope our Chiefs do us proud this year! They, as well as well, get a fresh start in the spring. Many of you may remember that we at Eagle Newspapers host a popular event— a night with the Syracuse Chiefs, with free tickets availabe to our readers at our main office at 251 James St., Suite 100, in Syracuse. We have not yet set a date for this annual event, but stay tuned to eaglenewsonline.com and an announcement will be coming down the pike shortly. So, with winter behind us, the thought of watching as the Chiefs run the bases and field balls to the delight of the crowd, inevitably finds me thinking of spring and sunshine. After the long, cold winter, I couldn’t be happier to know that soon I will be taking a walk down memory lane as I enter the stadium.
