From A Great and Glorious Game: Baseball Writings of A. Bartlett Giamattiby A. Bartlett Giamatti, et al"The Green Fields of the Mind "

It breaks your heart. It is designed to break your heart. The game begins in the spring, when everything else begins again, and it blossoms in the summer, filling the afternoons and evenings, and then as soon as the chill rains come, it stops and leaves you to face the fall alone. You count on it, rely on it to buffer the passage of time, to keep the memory of sunshine and high skies alive, and then just when the days are all twilight, when you need it most, it stops... and summer...

And in the end, fans somewhere are saying
"Wait till next year"
