Walking into Regions Field, home of the Birmingham Barons, Michael Whitten stops to gaze out on the lush green grass, and sees two baseball teams warming up.
Neither is the Barons. Its Minor League Baseball season had been cancelled due to the coronavirus.
Instead, the teams on the field are part of a local amateur league for men age 35 and over. Which doesn't matter to Whitten and his family.
"We haven't been able to go to any sporting events in a long time," he says. "So we wanted to get out and do something fun and be outside."
