Philosophy & Baseball

Back story: The Freshman reading was John Grisham’s Calico Joe which I haven’t read but which I hear isn’t all that great a book. It’s about baseball.

The College of Arts & Sciences wanted to make this book a come together thing for the Freshman. In week two-three Freshman are disoriented, they are home sick, they need a new family (seriously, I heard this). So make Calico Joe come alive! Do the physics of baseball. How wound do you want your ball?

And Mr. Big Food obligated.

The Philosophers posed some questions and SPORTS peoples’s responses were amazing. These are smart people.
