Baseball is a mythologically, intricately complex pastime the nuances of which poets and physicists alike are destined to grapple with for time immemorial, or as long as humans walk this earth. In baseball, through the perfectly-calibrated magic of a stick, a ball, and a four-sided diamond, infinite possibilities are opened up. Randomness and chaos, heroism and emotion, action and pastoral beauty – baseball encapsulates it all, the wealth of human experience.
In particular, the strategies involved in baseball are immense. No single human mind could possibly grasp them all, and that includes me. Indeed, let me be the first to admit that when it comes to the game of baseball I am not exactly a strategic genius.
Something to keep in mind.
UPDATE 9/23: Looks like they got my memo!
