Late April means the rapidly approaching end of another semster as well the start of another baseball season. For several years, Hobart has dedicated some of its digital column space to work inspired by the National Pastime. From haiku to a piece on the Philly Phanatic, the editors have more than a soft spot for the game. Enjoy this creative nonfiction piece by Anthony Micheal Morena, published as part of last year’s baseball issue.
