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.

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.

Strike

I do find it somewhat amusing that these two very different sports share this term.  “Strike” means something very different in each world, but if you really think about it, they’re also quite similar.

Orb catchers

An acquaintance posted this one on social media.  As a Royals fan, this is excruciatingly easy to identify with.

Vegan baseball

I’m the first to admit that I am far from vegan in terms of lifestyle or diet — cheeseburgers and ice cream are each their own food groups, in my book.  But I will say that I’ve become more conscious in the last year or so about the negative affects of consuming animal products, both on individual health and on the environment.  I love my leather glove, but this comic did make me stop and think for a minute.
