Baseball as Polytheism

I’m beginning to sense and think that the game of baseball is a perfect analogue for modern polytheism, which barely exists anymore by the way. There are always examples of a mere mortal challenging and defeating gods. You may idolize one god above the rest, but there are always a multitude of gods, with new ones swirling into fame and power out of the ether all the time. This is only the beginning of a meditation on baseball as religion, amongst other things. Stay tuned.
