Hello! To celebrate the classic American summer sport of baseball– and the All-Star Game on July 14th– we present to readers what may well be a modern classic by Tom Tolnay, “Baseball Is Truth, Truth Is Baseball.”
Is it a story?
Is it an essay?
Read it and decide. We believe you’ll find in the tale a great deal of insight and meaning.
What I’m saying is this: Baseball’s a thinking fan’s game, and understanding its subtleties requires an upper-deck level of intelligence as opposed to, say, eyeballing a horde of foul-ball twits (or should I say “twitters”) in leggings kicking an air-pumped ball hither and thither.
