Quote of the day

The appeal of baseball is intimately wrapped up with one’s youth. Baseball is very much about being young again in a harmless way. And one of its core appeals is to remind America of a time when it was young. You fly over a major city at night in the summer and suddenly you’ll see that green oasis that reminds everybody of baseball’s basic mythology: we come from a rural, simpler America. What’s home? Home is longing for when you were happy because you were younger.
