"I’ve labored to keep a division between the job part and the fan part, and the ballpark is the most clear manifestation of that. I don’t keep score. I don’t take notes. I am hard-pressed to remember the last time I went to a game alone, something that was common for me into my thirties. Going to a ballgame is about the ballgame, sure, but it’s more about friends and hot dogs and being outside and the three kids in the row in front of us dying to get on camera."
