Quote of the day

Just enough breeze to lift the flags along the upper edge of the north stands and let them fall again lazily.  The diamond and outfield, sharply cut, were a bright velvet carpet to Joe’s eyes.  As the players ran back and forth on it he could feel with envy its turfy spring and wished for — something, nearer definition now than ever before in his life.

~William Carlos Williams, from White Mule
