“The thing that slowly dawns on us after we watch a number of games is the absence of a clock. It’s one of the several things that are quite unique about this game. There’s nothing ticking away out there. We don’t look at the clock and say ‘This game is soon going to be over.’ The game might be over soon or not for hours or not ever in effect. If you keep hitting you’ll live forever; the last out will never come.” - Roger Angell
