Airplane noises

I’m curious what noises this umpire would make when signaling an out.

Funyuns

Team snacks can be an important factor when choosing a baseball team.

Contact lens solution

This got a chuckle out of me. Dry contacts, man, they really do mess with your vision.

Teddy the Republican Batter

Theodore Roosevelt is well-known for the line, “Speak softly and carry a big stick.” This cartoon takes that phrase and gives it a baseball twist. In it, Roosevelt is depicted as a baseball player on the field amongst other political figures. If you look closely, you can see the phrase “Honest & upright government” printed on the bat, while the ball bears the phrase “Trashy politics.”

The image was created in January 1903 for Puck magazine, a political satire publication printed in the early- to mid-1900s in New York City.

Playing sports

This seems like a common theme among today’s youth. Admittedly, though, it is far easier to throw a curveball on MLB The Show than it is in real life.

No bean balls

That’s one way to draw an intentional walk.

Priorities

This might win the award for the most wholesome thing of the day.

Admittedly, it’s a bit of a stretch to call this a baseball comic. But it does put things in perspective, which I say counts for a lot.

If cats played baseball

This would be my cat, if she were asked to play outfield. And birds would not be the only distraction — she also gets distracted by rabbits, squirrels, lizards, other cats… basically any other living thing that dares come within her sphere of awareness.

It’s just a little rain

We’ve got thunderstorms where I am at this morning, so this seemed fitting.

Rosin bag

Rosin bags and gym chalk are so messy. I’m amazed we don’t see more sneezing fits on the pitcher’s mound.
