BERRYVILLE -- There is much hubbub over Major League Baseball. No doubt. But the big leagues don't hold a candle to little league, Babe Ruth, and peewee baseball. At least in the eyes of parents, grandparents, and of course, the kids.

Want to see shear excitement and play for "love of the game?" Go out to A.L. Carter, or Lake Leatherwood or Green Forest's Field of Dreams and watch the young people playing coach pitch and t-ball.

Even better, go out to the "old ball park" and have supper. Grab a couple of dogs and soft drink and sit back and enjoy a gorgeous Ozarks' spring evening.
