Athletic teams are institutions on another level, a collection of human beings who have the talent to achieve what we, the common people, cannot. We secretly wish we could be them. We like to think their investment in us is as great as ours is in them. But even if that is not so, they wear our city’s name across their chests.
Baseball is part of what makes a community. When we learn who these athletes are, about their backgrounds and dreams, we become even more invested. We want them to achieve greatness the way we want our own children to prosper. When they do, we cannot help but scream inside and out.
As the weeks fade into the darkness of winter, and you want to scream again, perhaps the words and photos in this commemorative section will hit the appropriate notes to carry you back to Opening Day, the summer months, playoff October - and, of course, the 1st of November.
As you fade into a state of satisfaction, please give a psychic shout-out to the fans on the north side of Chicago and in Cleveland. For 102 and 62 years, respectively, they still haven’t found what they’re looking for.
