The Beauty of Baseball Part II

By October 23, 2015 No Comments


For today’s post I simply ask that you click on this link and read a wonderful story about failure and grace. More specifically, it’s a story about a blown call during the 1985 World Series that some (Cardinals fans) say gave the World Series title to the Kansas City Royals. Fitting, I think, to read this on a day the Royals might make it back to the World Series to face the New York Mets. After reading this story I thought, “I need to write a blog about this”—but what I have to say pales in comparison to the story itself.

Today I’m grateful for baseball—for play that lifts our spirits and teaches us important lessons about what it means to be human.
