Going to Bat for the Environment

The good thing about having a sports stadium in a dense downtown area is that even die-hard drivers can usually be convinced to take public transportation to the game. ($20+ parking has a way of doing that.) And even though these transit neophytes can cause chaos and confusion, it does my baseball-loving, planet-hugging heart good to see the throngs of people pouring off buses, BART, and the ferry every gameday. Also cheering is this report from Treehugger about Major League Baseball's small green steps--including giving Ichiro Suzuki, this year's All-Star MVP, a hybrid SUV instead of the regular gas-guzzling kind. Hey, I said they were small steps.
