Baseball, Neighborhoods and Opinions
I love baseball…..played a lot, coached some and have always been a fan. The rules of the game at first glance appear simple, but the complications surface when special situations occur. For instance in last years World Series Game three an apparent double play at home plate by Boston became the winning run scored by a St Louis base runner on an obstruction call on the Boston third baseman. The ruling is seldom seen, but the rules are clear and fair. The call was correct by the umpires. The rules were interpreted correctly and the integrity of the game was maintained.
Transfer this to our neighborhood. Part of Moss-Bradley is a “Historic District”, and has special rules to abide by. All residents, organizations and businesses must abide by these rules. The rules must prevail to protect the integrity of the Historic District no matter what the need, situation or organization…..Just my opinion!
