Real Baseball

Posted on 08/11/2002 in misc

I just watched back to back little league baseball games on ESPN2. I saw:

  • Players who really care if they win or lose
  • Baserunners who run out every ground ball
  • Outfielders who understand the concept of a cut-off man
  • Umpires who actually call the strike zone as its writen in the rule book

I didn't see:

  • Players arguing with umpires, players, or coaches
  • A fight break out after a hit batter
  • The word strike used, except as the result of a pitch
  • Pitchers take forever between pitches
  • Batters calling time every other pitch

I saw two extremely well played, fast paced, baseball games. Screw the Major League Players Association, its Little League World Series Time!

I like hearing from readers, all three of you! Nobody comments on blogs anymore, and I'd rather not use Facebook or Twitter as a comment system so it's back to the email.
