I miss the voice of Mike Shannon

I have not missed baseball nearly as much as I would have thought. Or maybe I should say I have missed baseball desperately, but I’ve also missed seeing friends, going to restaurants, and so many other aspects of life, that the absence of baseball hasn’t stood out to the degree I would have expected.

So maybe it’s understandable that my most severe pang of sadness at the absence came Monday night, when I was doing an extremely ordinary thing, and it hit me that Mike Shannon was not on the radio.

Here in Iowa, we have been given the all-clear to resume youth baseball, and we are - under an umbrella of new guidelines.
