October and April have several similarities: both can be hot and cold, both are at the beginning of the change of seasons, and both are big baseball months. But one is the beginning, and the other is the end. One is the commencement for all, and the other is the coronation for one.
So, if your home town team isn’t doing very well right now (Philly and Nationals fans, take note) relax. That’s right, RELAX! Baseball is like life and life is like baseball. In life and in baseball, the end is vaguely in view, and there’re a lot of games to play and a lot of days to live between the start and the finish.
Baseball is like life and life is like baseball. Between the first pitch and the final out there’s lots of time to make mistakes, emit errors and generate gaffes. It’s cold now and it will be cold then and all along the way and there’s a lot of time to straighten out slips and triumph over trips. It’s a long season so there’s plenty of time to tidy up tumbles and straighten up stumbles. It’s still early so there’s plenty of time to blot out blunders and blotches and faults and foibles.
But don’t try to do all of that on your won. You will need help. You will need Divine assistance. Kinda like “Angels in the Outfield,” but with more of a Heavenly twist.
Thank God. Aren’t you glad baseball is like life?
