Great Baseball Writing

Paul Hoynes, The Plain Dealer  beat writer for the Cleveland Indians, came up with a gem in writing about the game versus Toronto on 7/7. Just a few words vividly described the first eight innings of  baseball.

"For eight innings Progressive Field sounded like a college library during spring break. It seemed as if the Indians had hung a do not disturb sign on the locker room door after taking two out of three from the Yankees. "

Long before the ninth inning , I had abandoned my beloved Indians. Wouldn't you know it, Hafner hit a game winning home run in the ninth. The college library became a stadium of roaring fans and I didn't get to enjoy the moment.
