The Orioles, Red Sox and Yankees are playing baseball again.

So are the Phillies, Cardinals and Cubs.

In the Capital Region, Mighty Warriors, Spartans, Blue Streaks and Patriots are in the green and at the plate. For the next two months, high school baseball and softball players will spend innings away from home in outfields, infields and batter’s boxes.

In 1990 and 1991, young men and women acquitted themselves with honor. Softball pitchers Shane Kozak of Schenectady and Chris Nally of Columbia were throwing missiles. Steve Pelosi was stealing bases for Johnstown. Todd Lucca was knocking out hits for Mohonasen.

It’s time to “Play ball!” once again. Local players are back on the same fields used by their baseball and softball ancestors 20 years ago. They’re swinging, slinging, striding and sliding just as hard as the “kids” — now in their mid- to late 30s — did during glory days of the past.
