Play Ball


According to Annie Savoy, Walt Whitman once said, "I see great things in baseball. It's our game -- the American game. It will repair our losses and be a blessing to us." Walt didn't say it exactly like that, but the sentiment seems the same regardless.

Last night, Jessie & I made our first pilgrimage of the year to the minor league ballpark. The arrival of baseball is a sign that we have survived another winter. Much of what seemed dead only weeks ago is now alive and green and thriving. The slate has been wiped clean. Everyone's team has a shot at the pennant.
