Since 2001, it’s tradition that I post Green Fields of the Mind at the conclusion of the Red Sox season. https://yalealumnimagazine.com/articles/3549-the-story-of-green-fields-of-the-mind “It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone. You count on it, rely on it to buffer the passage of time, to keep the memory of sunshine and high skies alive, and then just when the days are all twilight, when you need it most, it stops. Today, October 2, a Sunday of rain and broken branches and leaf-clogged drains and slick streets, it stopped, and summer was gone.” It’s sad that baseball is gone but what a perfect way to end this historic season. Spring Training begins in 108 days. I love that number. Congratulations to everyone!
