Why I love baseball, reason #30

Look at the beauty of that swing, the way the follow-through arm is parallel with the bat, the way the neck is in a perfect line with the middle of his body. This is the art of baseball, with its lines and shapes and angles screaming out to sculptors and painters to immortalize such a swing with bronze or marble or canvas. Add to it the aesthetic simplicity of the white on navy and the Old English D and you have a masterpiece worthy of the halls of Rome.

The beauty of a good swing is such that would make Michaelangelo cry.
