Good one, Johnny.
How about a high net for the outfielders to catch the ball.
I’m gonna need a bigger bat.
The ABS (computerized automated strike zone) will solve the problem of some umpires being so off with a lot of their calls.
It was Casey at the bat.
Oh, somewhere in this favored land the Sun is shining bright;
A band is playing somewhere, and somewhere hearts are light;
And somewhere men are laughing, and somewhere children shout;
But there is no joy in Mudville—mighty Casey has struck out.
There have been some really bad calls…maybe they need to OVER see the game and not be at the same grounder level
Baseball used to be a great game, even with the missed calls on the bases and the missed balls and strikes. There were arguments and brawls and then some of the greatest stories from the old players/announcers like Dizzy Dean Harry Caray, and Joe Garagiola, et al. Now it is almost perfectly called and boring as heck. The game wasn’t perfect but was interesting and exciting even with its imperfection. I loved it then and now I don’t watch or even listen to it.
MLB lowered the mound by five inches in 1969, from 15 inches to 10 inches, because the strike out rate was too high.
