HISTORY AND SPIRIT





"The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. Baseball has marked the time. This field, this game, is part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that was once good, and that could be again."

--Spoken by Terence Mann (played by James Earl Jones) in Field of Dreams
