That’s hilarious. Nice to see something that’s interesting about baseball to a casual observer. Bummer that baseball is fading. To me, baseball is a game with high barriers to entry, for observers and players. For one, there are a boatload of rules. It’s slow and unpredictable in length. I know a soccer match will go 90minutes, and a person must understand Offsides. To play, soccer, a space and a ball is needed.
My 13 year old is playing his third season of baseball and we’re all beginning to enjoy the intricacies of baseball. He’s not a great hitter, but cerebral and knows how to select a pitch, earning lots of walks and a few base hits. It’s fun to hear him break down each of his at-bats. “Dad, I noticed the pitcher tense up as soon as it was a full count. I figured he-d try too hard on his next pitch and throw the fourth ball, and he did. With so many options in modern sport, It’s far less likely the next kid will stick with the game of baseball long enough to enjoy it as my son does.
