Sport Chumpions

This isn’t necessarily baseball-specific, but it’s a fun watch for sports fans in general.  This 1941 Looney Tunes cartoon features the hilariously not-so-great of the sports world.


Kicking dust

I sometimes have wondered if the “brawls” that happen in baseball are merely the players’ way of breaking up the routine of daily games and keeping things interesting.  Calvin and Hobbes certainly seem to enjoy the novelty.

Hit one for me

I came across this comic on Twitter and couldn’t help but laugh.  It’s an amusing twist on the Babe Ruth/Lou Gehrig “hit one for the sick child” legend.  The artist behind the strip appears to be one Nicholas Gurewitch.

Anyone else ever find themselves in Calvin’s shoes as a kid?

Poor Charlie Brown.  You can’t say Lucy didn’t follow instructions.  This is definitely a good lesson in elaboration and clarity.
