I love the perfect balance of mathematics and poetry incorporated by America's pastime. I love its receptivity to literary forms both belletristic and utilitarian. I love the crescendo of a first-class home run call. I love Justin Verlander's transcendent curve, and that I can look up its vertical break and spin rate in mere seconds. I'm Garret Craig, a freshman at Cornerstone University and a passionate follower of baseball and the Detroit Tigers.
