We call them “the boys of summer.” They are the men who play for our national pastime. Our memories of childhood are filled with their exploits, amidst our lazy days in the sun.

The first day of summer (as defined by the turning of the planet's axis, as opposed to the popular culture) is drawing nigh. Last month, on the 21st, the baseball teams of the University of South Florida and the University of Connecticut faced one another, in the annual Big East Baseball Tournament. This clip shot by the staff at Bright House Field shows the result of two teams waiting through a five-hour rain.

So it goes as we welcome the season, for this week's Friday Afternoon Moment of Whimsy.

Play ball.
