Fun:Baseball

Baseball is a game (or a sport, if played by grown men) where people try to hit a ball with stick.

If they hit the ball with the stick they try to run in a circle.

Each team is allowed to fail to hit the ball with the stick 27 times in one game, although this number is often lowered for youngstas and drunks.

Baseball is popular in many countries, including:

  • United States
  • Japan
  • Mexico
  • Cuba
  • Venezuela
  • Puerto Rico
  • Dominican Republic
  • Nicaragua
  • Panama
  • Canada
  • Australia
  • Korea

All the great players from those countries travel to the centrally-located United States each autumn (northern hemisperic-centric reference) for their North American Closed Championship World Series championship games.

Maximum Leader George W. Shrub had a bit of involvement in baseball[1], and although he wasn't very good at it, it did provide a way for his father's friends to hook him up with a few million dollars he could pretend he earned.

In the UK the game is called "rounders", and is mostly played by schoolgirls, who see no reason to wear ridiculous amounts of gear.

The most vital thing for a memorable baseball game is to reserve cheap seats (which many people call the nosebleeds). They offer you a great view of the field while leaving enough money in your pocket to buy one or two hot dogs.[2]

Famous quotes[edit]

  • "Baseball bin' very very good to me"
  • Anything by Yogi Berra
  • "Reverse the Curse"
  • "Good hitting will always beat good pitching - and vice versa"
