    lol...
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    Looks more like college ball to me, but you're right just the same.

    I spent a fair bit of time playing ball, and still miss it terribly. Mostly because I loved playing ball, but a lot of it was because of stuff like this. Baseball attracts some gifted athletes, and most are characters of one sort or another. Rain delays were tough because all you did was sit in the dugout for lengthy periods of time, staring at the field and wondering if you were going to play or not. It was hard to stay mentally focused.

    Bored men with adolescent mentalities are pretty good at making up their own entertainment.

    How is that different than a regular game?

    If you're a pine jockey, not much. If you're a position player, there's plenty to keep you busy.

    Either you never played the game, or you weren't much good at it.
