Great Plays

The average professional baseball game has many exhibits of extraordinary athletic talent that are taken for granted. The shortstop catches a ball and, while in mid-air, fires it off to the first baseman. The center fielder runs down a hit and then throws the ball all the way to the catcher in order to stop a runner at home.

Amazing stuff that may be lost in the course of the game.

So it is with much of life. There are extraordinary achievements all around us that we can easily miss. As with the people in the stands, we appreciate the game much more when we notice the many marvelous things that did not have to happen that way.
