How to Fall in Love with Baseball Again 

Opening day is finally here (if your team played yesterday, you need to remember that baseball in March doesn’t count), and Esquire’s Chris Jones has a piece entitled How to Fall in Love with Baseball Again. He’s had his ups and downs with the game, including an apparently-hellish time covering the game for work:

Nevertheless, Jones has come back around. Let’s hope baseball heeds his parting advice.
