Big league dreaming
Editor’s note: Pastor Ken Wilson of the Princeton Bible Church, a lifelong Detroit Tigers fan and aspiring journalist, covered the American League Championship Series at Comerica Stadium in Detroit. Here’s his perspective of the goings-on behind the scenes. He observed the Boston Red Sox win two of three games in Detroit to take a 3-2 series lead back to Boston.
Imagine being a 10-year-old child gathering your friends for a game of baseball at the local park on a Saturday afternoon; picking teams, make-shift bases, borrowed gloves and a beat up old baseball, and then yelling, play ball!
You take your turn at the bat and proclaim, “I’m Ty Cobb,” or “Babe Ruth,” or “Hank Aaron,” or “Miguel Cabrera;” pick your generation, we all did it. We would dream about hitting one out of the imaginary park of our favorite team. It would only get better if we had the opportunity to go to a big league game and perhaps get an autograph or a ball for a souvenir.
