Colum McCann attains the summit of eloquence in “What Baseball Does to the Soul”

American literature is replete with paeans to baseball. Over the years, they’ve appeared in the sports pages, in novels, and in stories. But Colum McCann’s essay in this past Sunday’s New York Times is so moving and beautifully expressed, I want to share it with you.

It is about our National Pastime, and much more.

Here is “What Baseball Does to the Soul.”
