Bernie Sanders put his Brooklyn stickball training to good use on Tuesday by playing a fairly competent game of softball at Iowa’s Field of Dreams. Generally, these kinds of events feel forced, but please tell me if you don’t see a soupçon of fun and whimsy in Uncle Bernard’s astonishingly capable softball skills.
Swing for the fences, Bernard.
That’s a strike if I ever saw one!
Batter up. Hear that call. The time has come for one and all to play ball.
Ice those knees when you get home, bud. You did good.
