Put the Nats’ Season Into Perspective at Hill Center DC

The baseball season is almost over for the Washington Nationals, and it’s been a bit of a disappointment for those who were expecting a nonchalant walk to the World Series. For a bit of long-term perspective on baseball in the nation’s capital, Hill Center DC is hosting Frederic J. Frommer tonight, who will talk about his new book, “You Gotta Have Heart,” a history of baseball in Washington that stretches from 1859 to 2012.

CBS newsman Bob Schieffer will lead the discussion with Frommer. Perhaps this year’s season, a winning one but without a playoff berth, will hurt a little less when stacked up against history. From 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at 921 Pennsylvania Ave. SE. Free. To register, go here.

For a nice pre-event read, Thomas Boswell’s column in the Washington Post today sums up the Nats’ season pretty well: Not too shabby, but not good enough, and what’s next? Such reads are a nice way to even out some of the disappointment and face the fact that expectations were set a wee bit high this year.

    Those who preach from collectivism’s altar are oblivious to the fact that civilization depends upon the social processes from which reason emerges and that its advance depends upon those processes being free.
