Baseball eyes MIAC title run

Over the past three and a half months, the St. Olaf baseball team has played 38 games, accumulated nearly 4000 miles in traveling distance, and logged well over 200 hours of practice time. Yet in the end, the previous 100 days have been little more than a prelude for the next two.

It reminded me of the many games of catch I played with my father.
