Baseball was the iconic American game long before football. It was the Saturday afternoon pastime when families and friends gathered at the local park and cheered on teams made up of various local businesses, churches or organizations. Little League was the perfect place for boys, then for girls, too, and – as the years went by – younger kids joined T- ball teams. It was never a great game for television – it is hard to gauge those innings since they depend on “outs”, not a ticking clock. But it was and still is a game that encourages cheering on favorites, chowing down on peanuts, popcorn and cotton candy while getting together with friends and family.
Catching that Fly
Catching a ball that makes it into the stands and then getting it autographed makes a perfect game for many fans or if you can’t catch the fly, at least getting an autographed ball. That is one big difference between baseball and football – you will hardly ever see a football make it into the stands.
Proclaiming your Love of Baseball
Word walls, posters and pennants are ways to show your loyal fandom or to display your enjoyment of the game. A giant word or picture that focuses on baseball can turn a blank wall into a place for your special posters, cards, and even photographs. If you can catch one of you and your favorite player – that’s just pure gold.
Comfy Pillows, Spreads or Rugs
Throw pillows are the perfect way to display your fandom, and they are kind of handy with those stadium seats, as well. No need to sit on a hard bench if you have a nice, fiberfill pillow to cushion your behind. More than that, you can coordinate your room colors with the colors of your favorite team.
Light Your World with Baseball
Use wall hanging or tabletop lamps with a baseball theme to light your world. It could be an advertising light with a team name on it or a table lamp that has a base shaped like a baseball. Or maybe it is just the word “baseball” picked out in lights. Whatever it is, you already know that baseball lights up your world – so don’t be afraid to show it. Below are ten examples of baseball-themed decorations. Enjoy.
