Soren regards baseball as a metaphor for fantasies of American culture.
“The fantasy that failure leads to success," remarks the artist, "despite hitting the ball successfully only around a third of the time. The romantic myth of the restless wanderer, even as they cram in 162 major-league games a season. And the central American fantasy that says we have to do something extraordinary to lead a meaningful life.”
