'Lives beyond all harm'

  Fenway Park in the early evening.

Fenway Park in the early evening.

"At Fenway. Pedro blew seven innings

of unhittable smoke. Nomar stretched

a triple into a home run. My son and I

ate dogs, almost caught a fly. His first

major league game. Repeatedly,

my son kissed my arm, his thanks

inningless, our lives beyond all harm.''
