Summary
Applying to the secular activity of baseball a form of inquiry usually reserved for the study of religion, Sexton explores common ground between the game and what we all recognize as religion: sacred places and time, faith and doubt, blessings and curses, and more
Summary
Describes how baseball appreciation can lead to a transcendental experience that borders on the spiritual and discusses the shared connection between the sport and religion and the path to enlightenment
