A Minute of Zen

Greensboro, NC

Posted by David Bartenfield on Saturday, September 26, 2015

It is unlikely that the German, Quaker, and Scotch-Irish immigrants who established the town's first boundaries could have ever seen the rapid technological advances or cultural and developmental developments that molded our city. With a rich history since its founding in the early 1800s, Greensboro is located in the heart of North Carolina. Cotton mills and textiles helped Greensboro get its start; followed by influences of the railroad which drew tobacco, lumber, and furniture industries to town. Cone Mills, Blue Bell, Lorillard Tobacco, and Western Electric were early leaders in business development in Greensboro.

Quakers founded Guilford College and Methodists founded Greensboro College which are only two of the many colleges and universities that the city boasts and are still thriving today. Churches and education have helped build Greensboro's purpose and community helping to construct social, economic, and political structures that support this beautiful city. The University of North Carolina at Greensboro, A&T State University help round out over a dozen of the higher education opportunities in town.

Less than two hours to the mountains and four to the beach Greensboro’s location in the Piedmont Triad is an ideal place to live and still be able to enjoy frequent getaways to the mountains or the sea. If you want to stay at home, Greensboro is complete with activities for everyone young and old. With a focus on family, activities for children and their families are abundant. Recreation is available through city parks, recreation centers, YMCAs and sports centers, and greenways and trails for walkers and cyclists. College life is evident in all corners of the city with cosmopolitan opportunities for young adults in downtown Greensboro.

A&T

The above photo features the baseball team of North Carolina A&T State University. On Saturday, they held an inter-team baseball game at War Memorial Stadium on Yanceyville Street. Blue and Gold played hard against each other, strictly for the good of the team as a whole. War Memorial is currently the NC A&T's home baseball stadium. War Memorial was used for minor league baseball teams (and other activities)  from 1930 until the the new stadium was built in 2004 in downtown Greensboro. How wonderful that the historic, War Memorial Stadium is still being used. 

Writing about baseball in Greensboro today, we would be remiss not to mention José Fernandez, the pitcher for the Miami Marlins who died tragically in a boating accident this past weekend. Fernandez played briefly for the Greensboro Grasshoppers at the beginning of the 2012 season and threw the first six innings of a combined no-hitter, when he was right here, affiliated with our hometown team. With all of Fernandez' baseball success, a memorable personal story was when he and his mother were fleeing Cuba, his mother fell overboard, and Fernandez jumped in and saved her life. The very water that brought Fernandez freedom also took his life. Greensboro was honored with his brief presence here, just four years ago.*

Greensboro is a great baseball town. From the leagues for small children to the AAU teams, the local university teams, and the Greensboro Grasshoppers, Greensboro has exciting baseball games in progress just about every night of the season. We really enjoyed the A&T scrimmage on Saturday and look forward to watching them play again. It would be lovely to watch someone else in Greensboro get picked up by the major leagues.
