Role playing for a self-esteem boost

After all, what are dads for?

If only I could get this to work on the field for my teams.

Double runs

So long as the 2020 season is already twisted, maybe we can just play ball the Calvin & Hobbes way this year.  Scoring this play would be interesting.  Do you think this counts as two RBIs?  Two hits in one at-bat?

Road kill

I’m not sure I 100% agree with these vultures.  Putrid is putrid, no matter the venue.  I will say, though, that while I enjoy hot dogs at home, they do somehow manage to taste even better at the ballpark.

Home run trot

Clearly, this coach needs to re-evaluate their priorities.  You just never know when you might need to break out the home run trot, especially at the Little League level.  It’s best to stay prepared at all times.  Hopefully coach is at least allowing the team to practice the bat flip?  Because nothing teaches sportsmanship like perfecting the art of showing off.

This is a lot like that Abraham Lincoln quote about not trusting quotes you find on the internet.

Detour

This comic feels a lot like this entire baseball season, doesn’t it?

Washing the world

It may be Thursday and there might not be baseball right now, but I find myself identifying with this sentiment right now.  It is currently raining in my city, with the forecast showing rain and storms throughout the day, meaning that I’m going to have a hard time squeezing my run in.

Roman Colosseum

It’s been a minute since I posted a good Peanuts strip.  The pressure Charlie Brown feels on the mound in this one is classic.

Dugouts, then and now

This is pretty reflective of a lot of areas of life these days, actually.

Waaaay back!

You know how some baseball fields don’t actually have an outfield fence, but rather the outfield has a part that goes into a sudden downhill if you run out far enough?  Let’s hope none of them have a drop quite this extreme.
