Baseball season is officially here! … at least games that count in the Western hemisphere that is.  ESPN’s new Sunday Night Baseball crew debuts tonight as well as the new Marlins centerfield sculpture that pays tribute to the great tradition of the national pastime.  Uhh… or something like that.  They had flamingos in the centerfield of Ebbets Field, right?
