Quote of the day

Because physical action is stressed in all spectator sports, some potential fans may be bored by the prospect of watching bodies run around on a playing surface. But in truth, sports – like all human endeavors – have both a mental and physical component, and the spectator who doesn’t understand what’s going on in the players’ heads is missing the point of the game. This is nowhere truer than in baseball, where the brute physical action in a three-hour game probably totals less than thirty minutes, but where the intervening time is solidly packed with intrigue, as the strategy changes from pitch to pitch.
