“‘My spiritual position is the outfield,’ I explained. True, I might be a good target for shortstops to throw at, but I’m most myself ranging in the outfield after fly balls. I no longer have great speed, but I still possess a long, graceful stride. I feel like an outfielder. ‘Left field is my Zen position,’ I continued. ‘You can damage an outfielder by making him play first. No man should be forced to play out of spiritual position.'”

–Richard Russo, Straight Man
