For a time when my children were growing up, I thought I would spend purgatory sitting on a ballpark bleacher. Now, I cherish those days of watching my son and daughter play baseball and softball. I also have enjoyed my share of shelled peanuts. Nothing gets a parent through a ninth inning, two-out tie like a bag of salty peanuts. The baseball passion continues in our family by watching the Tampa Bay Rays. And as Rays fans know, it can sometimes take a lot of peanut-shelling to get through those nail biters. With Fatherís Day approaching, our judges have similar memories of attending games with their dads. So we shelled our way through five brands of roasted, salted peanuts to pick the best ones for any bases-loaded, extra-inning game or weekend barbecue.
