Walking the Tightrope

We have played some incredibly good baseball games this year, where every baserunner and every out is a battle.  It is impressive to watch young men compete in those situations.  It takes a lot of guts and courage to do that … to put your heart into something and then put it on the line for 7 innings.  It’s an honor to be around.  Sure, it’s a lot easier to win 8-3.  Those games are fun too.  But, there is nothing like putting it on the line, walking the tightrope, in a 2-1 game.

In 1972, I remember Karl Wallenda walked across Veterans Stadium before a Phillies game.  I was glued to the TV, watching the 17 min walk before Larry Bowa, Steve Carlton and Greg Luzinski took the field.


There is a fine line between doing something great, and being crazy.
