a game ever green: memory, childhood and the abiding beauty of baseball

Besides being a wonderful game in itself, baseball has a way of connecting people across time, societal groups and generations. I recently presented a program about baseball’s beauty and community-creating qualities at the Catholic Information Center of the Grand Rapids Diocese. I showed video clips and gave readings from Roger Angell, Roger Kahn and my collection of essays, “Faith on First.” I also invited audience members to share special moments of enjoying baseball with loved ones. You can hear their touching stories and watch the program here. (Scroll down in the “Video on Demand” box and you’ll find it quickly.)

If you would like me to share this program with your faith community, civic organization or book group, feel free to contact me at honeycharlesm@gmail.com. I would love to hear your baseball stories as well!
