Can a perfect game be “stolen” from a pitcher? Who is allowed to steal it? It turns out some may, but not officials! Angry fans interact with sports as if to exert a supernatural force on it, resulting in perfect officiating (in their view), instead of engaging with the aesthetic elements of the game for entertainment. Maybe self-delusion into thinking one has a god-like dominion over sports is entertaining? We don’t know. And how does the “shift,” a fielder soft tossing a relay throw, and other fine observations play in baseball’s aesthetic dimension? You know what doesn’t play? Football: it just sucks!
