Grit your teeth

Grit your teeth or relax at the plate?  It depends on your hitting coach.

Outta this world home run

Ah, oops…  He just rendered all GPS devices within a hundred-mile radius useless.  Don’t you just hate it when a good thing goes bad?

Peanuts: Back on the Mound

I have been posting plenty of Peanuts strips here, but now, how about a motion clip?  I feel bad for Linus in this — nobody applauds his spectacular running-up-the-tree catch in the first moments of the video.


You know you’re having a bad season when…

Well, at least the Peanuts gang gets to put one in the win column for a change.

The video game is better

I’m of two minds about the sentiment in this strip.  On one hand, the purist in me wants to respond in outrage: “How dare you!  You just don’t understand baseball nor appreciate its intricacies!”  On the other hand, playing a video game is more active while sitting and watching a ballgame is inherently more passive.  You’re more in the game when playing it on a console than you are when watching others do it.  I suppose the argument can be made that the kid could just go out and play baseball for real, but how easy is it, really, to get together enough folks for a pickup game anymore?

Calvin & Hobbes: Baseball rules are confusing

Poor Calvin.  It’s hard to enjoy being a part of something when you have no understanding of what’s going on.

Playing catch

I’d argue that maybe the kid was doing too good of a job keeping his eye on the ball.
