Baseball, America and 9-11: A short tribute

This is a low key weekend around our house as America and the world reflect on the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001.  We had our share of drama that day, as I’ve recounted elsewhere.

Here on the Ball Caps Blog, I hold a cap over my heart in tribute to those who lost their lives that day and in sympathy with their family and friends who mourn them.

I also offer a link to a video I spotted on mlb.com the other day on the resumption of the baseball season at Shea Stadium and Mike Piazza’s dramatic home run to give the Mets a victory over the Braves. It was a cathartic moment in New York, one of the first small steps toward healing as America reeled in the aftermath of the attacks.
