Barney loves summer. Not because of the time away from school (which is great!) or the swimming or picnics (they're pretty great, too!). But because summer means baseball to Barney and Barney loves baseball. If he is not playing it, he is collecting and trading baseball cards or watching the major league games. Now that summer and the baseball season are winding down and the playoffs for the major leagues are starting, Barney is doubly happy because his own little league team the "Bruins" is in the playoffs as well. So here is Barney with a wide grin, dressed in his uniform, with his glove, ball and his "Bearyville Slugger" bat ready to play for the championship.
