From the first time I ever heard this song, I don’t even know how many years ago, I’ve hoped that people would take its message to heart.

Over the past 24 hours, three baseball-themed pieces that I wrote have appeared online. The deal between Pearl Jam and Fox Sports for the upcoming World Series was discussed in a piece on ThroughTheFenceBaseball, a memory from the 2003 Cubs season appeared on FiveWideSports, and a vision of how 2003 might have ended differently appearedContinue reading “Baseball’s hold on me”
