Take a Seat-Opening Day 2015

 "Don't tell me about the world.  Not today.  It's springtime and they're knocking baseballs around fields where the grass is damp and green in the morning and the kids are trying to hit the curve ball."
Pete Hamill

"A good friend of mine used to say, "This is a very simple game.  You throw the ball, you catch the ball, you hit the ball.  Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains."  Think about that for a while."
Bull  Durham

"I think walking up to Fenway is thrilling.  The approach to it.  The smells.  You go to Fenway and you think, 'Something wonderful is going to happen today.'"
David Halberstam

 "All baseball fans believe in miracles.  The question is, how many do you believe in?"
John Updike

"It is played everywhere.  In parks and playgrounds and prison yards. In back alleys and farmers' fields.  By small children and old men.  Raw amateurs and millionaire professionals.  It is a leisurely game that demands blinding speed.  The only game in which the defense has the ball.  It follows the seasons, beginning each year with the fond expectancy of springtime, and ending with the hard facts of autumn.  It is a haunted game, in which every player is measured against the ghosts of all who have gone before.  Most of all, it is about time and timelessness.  Speed and grace.  Failure and loss.  Imperishable hope.  And coming home."
Ken Burns, Baseball

"I see great things in baseball.  It's our game--the American game."Walt Whitman
