Baseball starts on the D train.
“We’re finally playing tonight,” says Jon from Highbridge. “It seems like it’s taken forever to get this thing started.”

“They all say the same thing,” Jon continues. “Wang is ready. Jeter is ready. A-Rod is ready. The Rocket is ready. Everyone is ready.”
“Are you ready?” someone asks.
