The Imperfect Game


a sport that celebrates our imperfection

Baseball teaches us, or has taught most of us, how to deal with   failure. We learn at a very young age that failure is the norm in baseball and, precisely because we have failed, we hold in high regard those who fail less ofien-those who hit safely in one out of three chances and become star players. I also find it fascinating that baseball, alone in sport, considers errors to be part of the game, part of its rigorous truth.
