"The Nationals had been losing Game Seven of the World Series, and now they were winning, because Howie Kendrick hit a home run. He was, in that moment, every eight-year-old baseball fan who has ever had the dream, everyone who ran around his bedroom in his pajamas, who slapped rocks over the barn, who wanted nothing more than to be the biggest baseball hero in the world."
