The Park

That this view is duplicated daily across the country for seven or so months never fails to please me. I remember my first glimpse of field green at the old Memorial Stadium in Baltimore like it was, well, yesterday, when my heart raced a bit heading down the concourse to my seat at U.S. Cellular Field. (Sox won 4-3 on a walkoff single by Orlando Hudson.) "Whoever wants to know the heart and mind of America had better learn baseball," Jacques Barzun said, "the rules and realities of the game."
