Thomas Boswell, columnist for the Washington Post sports section, hit it over the fence, so-to-speak today when describing, in part, how great the game of baseball is : With 2011 World Series and MLB playoffs, baseball hits it over the fence
In other sports, seasons simply end. Baseball lingers. In my office, I keep the scorebooks of my handful of favorite Octobers. Those scribbled personal accounts stay behind with us, letting you replay, relive and, deep into winter perhaps, have yet one more insight into what should have been done, but wasn’t. Other sports say they’ll have to look at the films before they will know what really happened, then they never tell you what they saw.
Baseball shows you everything the first time, in plain panoramic view, then lets you figure out what you saw, again and again, forever.
