Must-click link: Ted Berg will not stop playing baseball, thank you

Sep 30, 2010, 6:00 PM EDT

Ted Berg is a friend of HardballTalk. He reads it and links it from time to time over at his Mets (and other New York sports)-focused blog, Tedquarters. He is a witty chap on Twitter, and really, if you can make me laugh on Twitter a couple of times a day you’re going to be really high on my list.

Today Ted has a touching piece about grown-up sandlot baseball in Brooklyn and a diagnosis that could — but will not, he vows — keep him from playing it.

Good stuff from a good guy.  Check it out.

    Goodness. Great link. I can’t imagine ever having to face the possibility of my body not allowing me to play baseball. I hope plenty of people can donate to this cause.

    Very sweet article. It makes you realize that no matter how bad you think you have it, someone out there has it worse and are doing more with their lives. I stubbed my foot on the bureau so bad in the middle of last night, that with all the swelling, I think I broke 2 of my toes. I almost called out of work. I’m glad I didn’t, because I would have read this story and then felt like a complete a-hole for the rest of the weekend. Instead I’ll work all day, then limp around and feel like an a-hole for the rest of the weekend anyway.

    Great story, I have close relatives with MS so I know what Ted is going through. Touching stuff.
