Wow, what a unique perspective you took on this piece, Ryan. I felt so connected the whole time I was reading it.

Reminded me a little of George Will’s Men at Work, where in each chapter he analyzed one position by focusing in on one player.

Also reminded me of a book I read about a Celtics game 30 years ago, where the author spent the entire book in the one game.

Fascinating when you can focus in like this. And you told it so well.

There was just one thing I kept thinking: is there extended netting at the park? I was so worried that you were going to take a line drive foul ball to the noggin because you weren’t watching the batted ball!

The thought did cross my mind. It would have taken a pretty unusual foul ball to get me. But hey, these are the risks I take for my readers.
