In Praise of Baseball

If you've not been to a little league ball game recently and see a game being played as you drive by, stop and watch. You will see baseball in its pure form.

Baseball is the perfect game - refined through th late 1800's to just the right dimensions for human endeavor. Kids playing ball is as close to heaven on earth as we get, the rest of us have to wait to get to the heavenly Green Cathedrals.
