ANN BAILEY: Sports provide family with a win-win situationBefore I had kids, I marked the changing of the seasons in the traditional way; spring arrived March 21, summer, on June 21, etc. But about 10 years ago that changed, when my son Brendan was old enough to play t-ball, I started thinking of summer as baseball season. A few years later, when he started playing youth football, fall was gridiron season. Now, that Brendan is a freshman in high school and his brother, Thomas, is a seventh grader the four seasons are baseball, football, wrestling and track.
