More From John Thorn
- "More fundamentally, it is a dream that does not die with the onset of manhood: the dream is to play endlessly, past the time when you are called home for dinner, past the time of doing chores, past the time when your body betrays you past time itself."
- "Baseball presents a living heritage, a game poised between the powerful undertow of seasons past and the hope of next day, next week, next year."
- "Planning to play: that’s what saving for retirement is today – and it is antithetical to the nature of play, fully within the definition of work, and blissfully ignorant of the reality of death."
