For all the distances involved—400 feet to center Baserunnlng field; 345 feet

nowhere is the ...

Steve Palermo's Game of Inches April 6, 1992 Overland Park, Kansas — One of
the battery of physical therapists who put Steve Palermo through an average of
five hours of pain, five days a week, says he is the first patient she has had who,
looking back on the episode that broke his body, insists he would do it again. Of
course he would. He was just enforcing the rules. He is, after all, an umpire. Is,

Personally, I always felt I had to wait for my time to come; and when it finally
arrived, everyone else ...

Pacino's character explains to his team that football, like life, is a game of inches.
One step too quick or too late and you don't quite get there; one step too slow or
too fast and you don't quite catch the ball. He pressed his team to fight for that
inch because all those inches would make the difference between winning and
losing. This chapter is about fighting for inches, and in particular, fighting for that
very first inch. Timing is critical in football, particularly in the passing game.
