100 Words about Baseball

  • Why I Love Baseball
    There is no clock
    90 feet between bases is genius
    There are secret signs
    Hanging curveballs are sexy
    Numbers are magic: 755, 56, 7, 61, 1.12
    Tinker to Evers to Chance
    Ivy at Wrigley
    The Green Monster
    The suicide squeeze
    Cracker Jack
    Walt Whitman liked it
    Jackie Robinson and Pee-Wee Reese
    It just feels American
    The seventh-inning stretch
    Guys in tight pants
    Bull Durham
    There’s no crying in baseball
    A great play at the plate
    High socks
    Spring training
    Keeping score
    The rubber game
    The infield fly rule
    162 chances

Just reading this post makes me want to do something. It IS about choice. I'm particularly moved by AIMS...and haven't even checked it out yet. Thanks for sharing this.


I LOVE Karen Armstrong. I have also been following the EOL, but had forgotton/never knew that came from a TED prize. On the other had, I didn't know much about AIMS. Thanks for introducing me. I will definately check it (and Neil Turok) out.


Marilyn - I'm glad you came across this -- these projects are all so important in their own ways and I'm glad that I can do my little part to spread awareness of them.

Linda - same as above - glad that I could shine a light on this. TED is a pretty privileged and elite group, but the Prize is organized and carried out in a way that is just astonishing and heart-warming.
