Though football is looming large, baseball still has center stage. Michael Rando (12) had a moment that every kid who ever wore a glove thinks about. He made the play of the day (Watch the video). That it was shown on the big screen at Fenway Park is just cool beyond words. When the stories in professional sports are guaranteed money, referees on the take, steroids, dogfighting, gambling, and the like, I find something like this joyous and refreshing. Big tip of the cap to Michael and to ESPN for reminding us of what sports should be.
19 days until football season ...
