Burning thoughts on Torah, politics, and life in Israel and the Jewish world
The story is more interesting than most people know. Here it is.
David,Thanks for the pointer. I had forgotten how wonderful the poem is. It captures the spirit of baseball so perceptively and timelessly. I can't conceive of a similar epic written about any other sport.
The article is ok but the author is terribly opinionated. And to bring up 1986 in such a callous way. Only since last year have I been able think about it w/some serenity. Kaspit (kaspit.typepad.com)Plenty of good baseball books, too
Kaspit,Opinionated? Mike Freund? Wherever would you get such an idea?And I'm with you about 1986 - I was visiting New York during the World Series, sitting in a cafe with the game on, cheering on the Red Sox. The locals were not pleased.Notice that he doesn't mention the questionable Jewish values behind that other unique baseball play: the steal!
