Allie: (narrating) My grandfather used to tell my mum that kids should never have to worry about anything more serious than baseball. Everything you need to know is there. It has success and failure, moment where you come together and moments where you stand alone. And it has an ending. Not a clock, like in other sports, but an ending. And that, my grandfather used to say to my mum, is as close as a kid should have to come. To that sort of thing.
