Hanging aloft the chiffonier in my bedroom, encased in Plexiglas, is a baseball. A altogether allowance from my wife, the brawl bears the 1982 Apple Alternation logo and was signed, at some point amid afresh and now, by Robin Yount, the Milwaukee Brewers’ brilliant ambush and that season’s AL Best Valuable Player. The T in his signature resembles a star.
I’ve got a patchy anamnesis that some weeks afterwards the Brewers absent to the St. Louis Cardinals in the 1982 series, my grandfathering took me to a breakfast sponsored by the Knights of Columbus, or maybe the Lions Club. I don’t bethink whether my grandfathering cared all that abundant about baseball, but I anticipate we went because my father—his son—had died as the division was aloof accepting underway and my ancestors was aggravating to amusement us kids to appropriate contest aback they could. This qualified. The Brewers were all there—Molitor, Cooper, Gantner, Oglivie, Fingers, Yount, of course—and I larboard with a baseball active by the accomplished team.
One summer day some years later, a acquaintance and I were arena a bold we alleged “Kirby Puckett,” which had us leaping up adjoin an abstract centerfield bank to accomplish phenomenon catches, aloof the way the Minnesota Twins’ centerfielder did. (Playing “Robin Yount” complex laying out to save a no-hitter.) The brawl we were application got away, as the brawl we were application generally did—only this time it formed above my advanced backyard and into a drain. Aback I emerged from the abode with my autographed ball, we anniversary promised the added it would never hit the ground. We’d bolt every toss.
In his new book, Baseball as a Alley to God, John Sexton, admiral of New York University (where, abounding disclosure, he and I both teach), includes a agnate adventure by columnist Leonard Kriegel. Stricken with polio as a child, Kriegel was already presented, while in the hospital, with a brawl active by the 1945 Detroit Tigers. In his own autograph Kriegel recalls, “That brawl artlessly embodied the abstraction of concrete grace—a adroitness that had been ripped from my activity by the virus.”
Time passed. And one day, Sexton recounts, while arena bolt “the age-old brawl they were application artlessly fell apart,” and Kriegel and a acquaintance had acumen to aback that Tigers brawl from the house. I brainstorm them authoritative promises to bolt every toss. And yet: “One by one, the names on the brawl disappeared, chalked and cut and scuffed into abeyance by granite and brick and creosote.”
That is what happened to my Brewers brawl too, of course. No one catches every toss. Fathers die. So do sons. Children are afflicted. Still, Kriegel can say about that ball: “For one aftermost time, it had rescued me from a bad day.”
This is baseball to John Sexton. Adroitness and affliction. Miracles and doubt. Belief and joy and ecstasy, too. In his book Sexton argues that there are moments in the bold that lift us out of our approved existence: rescuing us, say, from addition bad day; acceding us an experience, in the words of one theologian, of “‘standing alfresco of oneself’—without abeyance to be oneself” (the arbiter analogue of ecstasy).
Now, it needn’t be baseball, Sexton is bright to point out, that takes us out of ourselves. Organized adoration can sometimes work. So ability music or art. But Sexton’s hope, in capacity that chase the innings 1 through 9—with allowance set aside, as well, for a pregame show, a seventh-inning stretch, and a acknowledgment to the clubhouse—is to accede that this bold can arm-twist the actual “essence of religion,” that “inside the bold the determinative actual of adherence can be found.”
In baseball, time passes added boring than in the absolute world, Sexton notes, and after a alarm to adapt the bold it could go on forever. This slowness and, with it, a advancement of eternity, trains us to see the apple added absolutely and with added care. And this feels true—the slowness, at least—until you attending aback and apprehend no bold anytime has gone on forever. Or, until you anamnesis with a faculty of deepening nostalgia, as Sexton does, the canicule aback the Dodgers played in Brooklyn, which makes you apprehend aloof how bound time absolutely goes. The Dodgers accept been in Los Angeles for added than bisected a century—long abundant to acquiesce for Sexton’s about-face to the Yankees. My Brewers accept played in the National League for about 15 years now. Yount’s been on the shelf for about 20. Yet, somehow, every bold is still a breach from that time dispatch by.

Each bounce for added than a decade, as if in apprehension of the accessible baseball season, Sexton has offered an undergraduate course, additionally alleged “Baseball as a Alley to God.” (The book is co-authored by Thomas Oliphant and Peter J. Schwartz, accompany and colleagues of Sexton who both accept continued access with the course. Oliphant’s accustomed Praying for Gil Hodges has been included on the abridgement over the years. Schwartz was the aboriginal apprentice anytime enrolled in the course.) This chic and the book both await on two agreement of art from Sexton’s beforehand canicule in religious studies to pave the alley amid baseball and the divine. The aboriginal is ineffable, “indescribable in words yet … apparent and real.” The additional is hierophany, a appellation adopted from University of Chicago fable Mircea Eliade, which agency “a appearance of the angelic or holy.” And to accompany these agreement together, Sexton takes us to Yankee Stadium. The date: Oct. 4, 1955. The Dodgers’ ambush Pee Wee Reese tosses a low brawl above the diamond, and aboriginal baseman
