Default About Baseball...

Has anyone else noticed baseball comes up with the weirdest stats?

"He has been the seond player in history to get 13 doubles, 1 tripple, 4 home runs, 35 RBI in a season, all while leading off with his left foot."

I think all sports are like that.


I think its funny when a player you have never heard of in football makes a great play. They usually say something like, he's possibly the best (whatever positiion he plays) in the NFL today!!

A minute ago you've never heard of the guy!

I have a question...

What is a "walk-off homerun"?

when the home team gets last licks in a tie game, whether it be the bot. of the 9th or extra innings, and someone hits a home run, the game is immediately over and the the teams walk off the field

I always though a walk-off home run was when they really nail one and know it as soon as it leaves the bat. Don't bother to run since you know it's a homer.

Technically you have to run, and you have to touch every base or you could be tagged OUT !!

I have a question - What is baseball?

Seriously, no offense to you fans, but baseball has to be the hands-down most boring sport in the world. I've tried, but I still can't see how people can watch it on TV. I can't make it through 5 minutes.

Yeah, its pretty boring, but have you ever been to an NBA game? Ive went to see the CAVS in Cleveland a few times. It looks more exciting on TV, but in person you see the whole court at all times and dont have the people commentating. I wouldnt pay for that again!

I saw the Indians once too. Pretty boring live, but then again, I had to be the designated driver that night.

I love hockey and watching at home and going to the arena are two very different atmosphere's. at home the play by play and replays make the game so exciting, at the arena you blink and you might miss something.
