The Untouchables

An article by posted on February 26, 2009

A man becomes preeminent, he’s expected to have enthusiasms.

Enthusiasms… What are mine? What draws my admiration? What is that which gives me joy? Baseball!

A man stands alone at the plate. This is the time for what? For individual achievement. There he stands alone. But in the field, what? Part of a team. Teamwork… Looks, throws, catches, hustles. Part of one big team.

Bats himself the live-long day, Babe Ruth, Ty Cobb, and so on.

If his team don’t field… what is he? You follow me? No one.

Sunny day, the stands are full of fans. What does he have to say?

I’m goin’ out there for myself. But… I get nowhere unless the team wins.
