To put it better, we believe the radar gun will get you drafted, but you have to pitch to get to the big leagues. Tools will get you drafted, but you have to be able to play to get to the big leagues.

A baseball haiku by Heather Ober

There doesn’t seem to be a title to this one — it is listed merely as “Haiku 5.” All the same, I found this haiku very relatable, even in its brevity. I’m sure most kids who grow up playing ball have this experience at some point in their lives.

Distance run per game per sport

I don’t think it comes as a surprise that baseball involves the least amount of running of any of these.  I am a bit surprised that a tennis match requires more running than a basketball game.  It looks like the original data came from Runner’s World, though I suppose it would be unfair to include the distance of a marathon in this chart.

Happy Halloween!

Whether you are trick-or-treating, giving out candy, visiting haunted houses, going to a party, or just kicking back, please be safe!  Also, this picture makes me want a cookie.

Two hours is about as long as any American can wait for the close of a baseball game, or anything else for that matter.
