I'm a Baseball Fan
Friday, July 11, 2008
I grew up watching and playing baseball. I love everything about the sport. It seems to be one of those sports that doesn't really translate well to people that haven't done it, and they can't understand how anyone enjoys it.
The common complaint is "it's boring," but let me tell you, there is nothing boring about trying to hit a 90+ MPH fastball...you can actually HEAR the ball coming! See, the thing is, you have no idea what pitch is coming your way, so you have to identify the pitch, figure out if it's a good pitch to hit, and then actually hit it...all in about half a second. How awesome is that?!?!
So, before saying baseball is boring, visit your local batting cage and stand in the cage to experience baseballs whizzing by you, no need to worry about trying to make contact!
