“All the world’s indeed a stage….” So sang Rush in their song, “Limelight.” I would disagree. All the world appears to be a baseball diamond. I know that looks to have come out of left field but it’s a whole new ball game and, if you let me touch base, I will explain.
The important thing is to cover all the bases and watch out for curve balls. A good rhubarb, no matter how colourful, will get you nowhere, so don’t be caught off base and stop grandstanding. You need to play hardball with the heavy hitters. How else can you hit a home run and join the big league?
It’s clear, right off the bat that you may have to pinch hit. You might even be a switch-hitter but don’t be a screwball. Remember that it ain’t over till it’s over. Step up to the plate, get a mitt and get in the game, play ball and, whatever you do, don’t strike out.
