The Big Inning began in March 2016, with the goal to capture each day of baseball in the form of a single inning. The idea came in part from the last line of an Ernest Hemingway poem he wrote in high school, which ends like this:
So if for no other reason than to follow the game in a new way, think of the inning as its own unit of highlight. Three outs, then three more. The first inning, the second. The fourth inning, the sixth.
The ninth, the extra, the big.
