More than baseball

I've written about sportswriter Joe Posnanski before. He writes for the Kansas City Star, and, now, for Sports Illustrated. (He even has the SI cover story this week, a fine piece on Albert Pujols.) He also has one of the great blogs around, which you can see if you turn your head a little to the right.

Posnanski is, I gather, pretty self-critical; in fact, one of the positives about his blog is his self-deprecating tone that crops up every so often. So, if he says he's happy about something he's written, it's likely worth checking out.

Such a story is this one from the Star. It's about a baseball scout, but it really isn't about baseball at all, it's just a lovely story about a man. I can't excerpt it, you'll have to read it, and I urge you to do so.
