It’s Spring has sprung, finally! Spring means green grass, flowering flora, sun shine, and warm weather…well, warm will eventually come along. Opening day for baseball is this week! The New York Yankees is our family’s favorite team…with second choice being the Philadelphia Phillies.

The topic of baseball provides a great opportunity for creating examples of alliteration. Writing examples of alliteration is a fun activity to see how many words can be found related to a topic or theme, such as I have done with Baseball below. Can you come up with more baseball alliteration examples to add here?
