Backyard Memories – Baseball

Good Friday afternoon!

Backyard Brian here, coming to you live from the Blue Ridge Baseball and Softball Academy batting cages.

I wanted to talk a little bit about my backyard memories from when I was a kid. One of the things that I spent a whole lot of time doing was hitting, kicking, and playing ball in the backyard. We even built a batting cage in our backyard out of recycled netting and played wiffle ball in our backyard. It’s one of the reasons that I love the backyard so much. It’s the place where I spent a lot of time as a kid. We also had woods behind our house and spent much of our time up there on our bicycle track; riding our BMX bikes. So my question is, what are your backyard memories?

I’d love to hear about your own memories from the backyard. Put them in the comments below. As you’re reading this post, what do you remember from your backyard as a kid? Maybe a great family time? It’s exciting for me, that as I go forward with our team here at Bear Creek, we get to build amazing backyard spaces.

Have a great weekend. I’m looking forward to talking to you next week and enjoy your backyard. It’s a little bit cold this weekend here in Virginia, so you might have to huddle up by the fire. It’ll be spring time soon though!

    Brian, we were fortunate to grow up in the country in North Alabama, and our yard basically ran all the way around the house so the sky was the limit! We had a basketball court where the goal was mounted to the power pole leading to our home, plenty of room to play baseball, and of course football. We could ride bikes, motorcycles, go-carts and roam numerous trails as well. Then as if that wasn’t enough we could top the day off with a walk down to the creek and a spring that bubbled out of the ground. It was an incredible childhood!
