Really? A Batting Cage?

Posted on Tue, May 18, 2010 at 12:50 PM

To the 150 or so West End neighborhood residents who recently showed up to vent their frustrations about a BATTING CAGE constructed at Larry O'Connell Field on Chebucto Road: ARE YOU F**KING SERIOUS?

The first time I drove by I remember thinking how I would have given ANYTHING to have a batting cage in my neighborhood growing up. These are probably the same people who turn around and moan and complain about "today's youth" and their lack of worthwhile pursuits... Explain to me again what's the problem with a bunch of kids playing a great game, enjoying the outdoors, and learning important life skills like teamwork and sportsmanship?
