Opening Day: The Ultimate Startup

Walt Whitman:

“I see great things in baseball. It’s our game – the American game.”

Opening Day 2014 arrived.


It’s a new season.

Baseball’s back.

Let the new stats flow like the time-honored arguments over who’s best.

Hank Aaron?

Mickey Mantle?

Perhaps Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, Stan Musial or Cy Young?

The point is, another season is here:

“People ask me what I do in winter when there’s no baseball. I’ll tell you what I do. I stare out the window and wait for spring.”

– Rogers Hornsby

It’s officially spring … for the “boys of summer.”

Baseball is the ultimate startup.

It iterates history.

Always makes “next.”

New memories.

New debates.

So, who is the best ever?

Tell you what, let’s continue that conversation during the seventh-inning stretch.

Right now, time for a hot dog, with mustard.

The game’s on.

“Baseball was, is and always will be to me the best game in the world.”

– Babe Ruth
