Hopes, dreams, glory, baseball and pole beans

It is no accident that our pastoral national pastime follows the agricultural calendar. It begins with seed catalogs and statistics, comparing yields and averages. During the preseason we rely on artificial light and warmer climes to condition our players and start our seedlings. 
On Opening Day we rake the baselines and till the soil, preparing our starting lineups. Peas and beans lead off with lettuce and spinach, quick on the bases but just as quick to bolt when the weather turns sultry.
