They say that baseball is the game of life.
You have many chances to get it right.
If all at home is good and well, you'll try all you can to get home again.
If all is not well and you don't get home you'll still have more chances to get home and win, but then you will have to depend on a friend.
If your friend strike out and you don't get home, it's not the end, the game is not over, and life's just beginning...
