Friday fun: A baseball story that may make you cry

It’s not local, but the Twins do play the Cardinals to open Target Field next year, and this incredibly well-written St. Louis Post-Dispatch story by Todd Frankel will have you rooting for at least one of the visitors.

    Great article. It should serve as a model for writing newspaper or magazine feature stories. It’s well-written and tells a compelling story without being maudlin or hitting the reader over the head with its message. Reminded me of Gay Talese’s writings. Thanks for sharing it.
