For the love of... el béisbol

DSC_0114I haven't been blogging much in the Gidget world these last few weeks as my family is on a 3-week long road trip to experience baseball in the Midwest and on the East Coast (see here for details). But I did want to share this little tidbit with you as we approach summer.

Baseball may be America's pastime, but it's a pretty big deal in many Spanish-speaking countries, too, especially in Mexico, and Caribbean countries like Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic, to just name a few.

A couple of years ago I came across this great glossary on mlb.com with baseball words in Spanish.  It's not surprising that there are a lot of cognates here considering where the sport originated. When I was teaching it came in handy for the chapter on sports, but it's also fun to just play around with during a game if you're a fan of baseball who's learning Spanish!
