I love baseball. You know, it doesn't have to mean anything. It's just very beautiful to watch.
This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh… people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

Baseball is a bat-and-ball game played between two teams of nine players popular in North America and parts of Central and South America and the Caribbean, East Asia and Europe.

  • The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good and that could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.
