Opening Day is once again upon us. This is, indeed, a good thing.

We get nostalgic at the beginning of the season. It brings us so much — relief that Spring has finally arrived, anticipation for our teams’ chances at contention, the promise of well-fought contests and exciting pennant races.

But over all these years, the circumference of baseball has extended beyond the foul lines. Our national pastime has prompted the incubation of things beyond the ballpark. Some of them are silly, others we wouldn’t want to live without.

Baseball is poised to bring us joy once again. This episode of Stealing Home looks at some other things our favorite game has provided us.
