There was a well-written op-Ed piece in the New York Times yesterday by retired pro baseball player Doug Glanville. It's about his friend and one-time teammate, Derek Jeter, and what his approaching 3000th hit means in the context of professional sports.

I admire the piece for its writing, which somehow manages to meander and flow at the same time, and for the simple truths about peak performance over a long career, even as the body begins its inevitable fade. Good, honest evocation that'll stick in your mind.
