Philosophy professor Steve Gimbel was published in the Baltimore Sun on March 31. He wrote a column about the start of the baseball season and the love of the game.
From the Baltimore Sun:
The dawn of the baseball season is an existential moment. For big market teams with owners willing to pay for marquee players, and general managers who build playoff-bound teams, it is a time of great anticipation.
It's also a time of hope, albeit dim, for those die-hard fans of teams who are off the playoff pace by double digits year in and year out. Their cautious optimism is one that illuminates the human condition.
