Two Barely Related Baseball GIFs

1.

To make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,—
One clover, and a bee,
And revery.
The revery alone will do,
If bees are few.
—Emily Dickinson

The hero, no. 21, is named Paul Householder. This is the only known time that Paul Householder has appeared on the internet. 

2. 

When someone cries so hard that it hurts their throat, it is out of frustration or knowing that no matter what you can do or attempt to do can change the situation. When you feel like you need to cry, when you want to just get it out, relieve some of the pressure from the inside - that is true pain. Because no matter how hard you try or how bad you want to, you can't. That pain just stays in place. Then, if you are lucky, one small tear may escape from those eyes that water constantly. That one tear, that tiny, salty, droplet of moisture is a means of escape. Although it's just a small tear, it is the heaviest thing in the world. And it doesn't do a damn thing to fix anything. —Chase Brooks

 
The hero, home plate umpire Bob Davidson, is a well known heel, but to his grandchildren Alana and Brock, he is simply PopPop, or some similarly endearing nickname.
