Heckuva baseball weekend, what with Hamels taking on Sabathia at new Yankee Stadium on Sunday. Since the Phils are out of town, the only baseball game in town, then, is the kickoff of the Strawberry Mansion All-Stars Little League. Looking for an uplifting way to start Memorial Day weekend? Go to 33rd and Diamond (the 32 bus drops you right at the corner of Mander Playground, which the field is located behind) and see if I can throw the first pitch more than five feet, thus proving that Mansion kids are far better suited for baseball than I. First ceremonial pitch around 10:30 a.m.
