“Keep your eye on the ball.” ~Ford Frick
This quote is the first rule in former National League President Ford Frick’s “Ten Commandments of Umpiring”. It came immediately to mind when I heard young Emma Gonzalez respond to a question about what she thought of Trump’s tweets. She said “The best thing for us to do is ignore him and continue fighting our fight.”
Emma’s wise beyond her years comment also made me think “Out of the mouth of babes comes truth and wisdom.” Modified interpretation of Psalm 8:2, Kings James Bible.
