What is it about baseball that makes the game such an integral part of the American landscape? No other sport evokes such a passionate following and drives grown men and young children to pour over box scores or devote countless hours discussing trivia. Unchanging, it is a part of the nation's fabric tying its past to its present and future. Baseball is a game of eternal childhood, where heartthrob and heartbreak go hand in hand. It is poetry of motion, colossal power, raw speed, and pinpoint accuracy, a classic tale of failure and redemption in which the heroic emerges and touches our collective soul. However, championships are not won by superstars but rather by teamwork and sacrifice. So it is with life.
