Quote of the day

A large part of the hold that organized baseball has on the American imagination derives from the concept of loyalty to the franchise rather than to individuals. In a world reeling from the rural to the urban, in a country where one does not live where he grew up, in the ever changing megalopolis, loyalty to a baseball franchise offers the same assurance and stability that ‘home from the holidays’ does.
