Thanks to our friends at Powerline for featuring Clark Griffith's recent perceptive meditation on "Baseball's Timeless Appeal." In their spirit, I'll also recommend to one and all the exchange in the Fall 1990 Public Interest between Donald Kagan ("George Will's baseball—a conservative critique") and George Will ("The romantic fallacy in baseball—a reply"), as well as Diana Schaub's essay in the Winter 2010 National Affairs, "America at the Bat."
