SAUDI TURF TEAM The Old Man at the Baseball Game

SAUDI TURF TEAM The Old Man at the Baseball Game
The old man at the baseball game sat in his usual seat in the bleachers. The chair he sat in was propped up for his comfort. He'd been coming to the game as long as the oldest person remembers, and even they were children when they first encountered him. So in essence no one really knew his age. Many people say even he doesn't know his correct age, but that's hard to believe with all the wisdom glowing all around him.
People would greet the old man at the baseball game first. The fans made this an honorary tradition, many had become accustomed to this greeting. Before the national anthem people would salute him as a token of their respect and regard for his presence at the game. Even when people came late, and missed the traditional greeting, they would approach him at the end of the game to give him their respect. Yet it was mystifying because no one realized that his presence never left the stadium or so it would appear after everyone left the fans just thought he left also, but somehow he just vanished, so it would appear.  He was here and then he wasn't here, this went on for years. Where he went no one knows, but long as he was at the game the old man at the baseball game was a fantastic welcomed treat.
Where the Old Man at the Baseball Game sat was comfortably among the children with their parents close by they'd be laughing and playing. They all listened to the wondrous tales about his childhood, the parents included. He spoke of the different ball games he played as a child, and how different they were from this game being played, but the baseball game is an event that has captivated his imagination.  He enjoyed the gatherings, and the closeness it would bring among families and friends in times of happiness. Tho, his faith is strong the children saw in the Old Man At the Baseball Game's eyes that he is spiritually good and blessed.  Their care for him was strong, as you could hear the children upon entering the stadium, "mommy, mommy, let's go see the Old Man!" they'd say.
