On Nostalgia

Nostalgia is one of baseball's defining attributes. The game's past shadows its present--always there to be conjured for instruction, to prod memories, and to revive dormant emotions. Nostalgia is the tribute the present pays to the past.
-John Sexton, Baseball as a Road to God, p. 198.
