But this is not a joke …

Major League Baseball starts tomorrow! The pitchman’s out. But give Donald Trump a break; many presidents have declined to throw the traditional first pitch while busy running the country. Meanwhile, San Francisco star hurler Madison Bumgarner promises memorable moves on Opening Day as he battles Arizona ace Zack Greinke. Two other matchups are set, featuring the unlikely world champion Chicago Cubs and the Cardinals in St. Louis, while the hapless Yankees host the Tampa Bay Rays. Now is fans’ winter of discontent made glorious by these Boys of Summer, as they pitch and hit their way to October. – SOURCE: OZY.com

Neither is this …

Penn Dutch Pacers Volksmarch Club is offering a noncompetitive 10K or 5K walk in Columbia on Friday April 28 through Sunday April 30.  Start point is Columbia Crossing River Trails Center, 41 Walnut St., Columbia, PA 17512.
