Gammons Is Back, Life Is Good

Peter Gammons is officially back at work. ESPN's baseball guru reported from his favorite stomping grounds, Fenway Park, on Wednesday. He also wrote a column for Peter is an eloquent and joyful writer as always, and this column is a must-read. But what makes it so incredible is that after retelling the terrible ordeal of a brain aneurysm and giving heartfelt thank yous to well-wishers, Gammons delves right back into baseball factoids and whatnots.

Gammons nearly died a few months ago, yet mere mortality can't keep him away from the ballpark. As he succintly said to Karl Ravech on Baseball Tonight, "this is what I do." The man seriously loves baseball, and the game and its fans are grateful for that.
