Baltimore Orioles at Buddy Attick Park.

It’s been a week, but a busy and somewhat productive week. We’re finally getting some migrants with regularity.

Where to go? I’ve tried a few places without much luck, but it’s often a crapshoot even at peak migration. I’m getting too old for all day marathons, so I’m usually just hitting two or three places.

Anyway, here’s the best stuff from the last week.
