    Calvin was just ahead of the times taking into account some of rules MLB has instituted over the last couple years.

    That’s going to make the statistics a lot more complicated.

    If baseball is an intelligent sport, that means the athletes are secretly geniuses.

    Calvinball seems like a lot more fun than plain old baseball.

    If the runner tags the 2nd baseman 3 times, the offense doesn’t get to bat.

    I think there is a distinct difference between rules and instructions. Calvin ball has a lot of instructions.

    Whatever you do, please don’t let SABR know about this. I still can’t figure out WAR, WHIP, OPS, etc.

    Any chance that ‘Calvin’ actually grows up to become ‘Sheldon Cooper’ of ‘TBBT’ ? Given ’Sheldon’s’ penchance for inventing games ??

    As a baseball player, I can confirm we do indeed have 12th base at practice.

    Ok, if 12th base has to be discovered, and there are only two people playing, doesn’t that imply that one of them placed it in order for it to be discovered? Wouldn’t that be an unfair advantage? Or is that what makes it a ‘ghost point’?

    If you like baseball, there is another activity for you that is about the same…watching paint dry. Baseball is a bunch of over paid prima donas playing a game and complaining about it, just like football, basketball, and any pro sport.

    I would actually WATCH a baseball game were the sport not SO GOD-AWFULLY BORING! George Carlin was right-there NEEDS to be drugs in certain sports! Get those MLB players packed out on some PREMIUM cocaine and meth, and let’s see how FAST they can get through those 9 innings! ;)

    12 bases: that’s about as bizarre as the 11 dimensions of string theory.

    I’ve often heard baseball described as a “thinking man’s sport.” I also heard an old timer say (many years ago) that anyone who THINKS he can hit a fastball thrown by Sandy Koufax or Bob Gibson must be crazy.

    The great Willie “Pops” Stargell once said that batting against Koufax was like trying to eat soup with a fork.

    In Mark Harris’s “The Southpaw,” about baseball players in the ’50s they played a card game called TEGWAR in hotel lobbies when they were on the road. The name was the acronym for The Exciting Game Without Any Rules. The object was to hook others into playing.

    Yes. This was published in the 80s, the era of Whitey Ball. Whitey doesn’t like the state of the game these days. https://www.stltoday.com/sports/baseball/professional/as-he-approaches-90-herzog-laments-the-state-of-baseball-and-its-fundamental-issues/article_715901d4-7b31-5259-a567-8fd8515a7a98.html

    “Ghost points” reminds me of when they pretended to play baseball with ghosts.

    No problem, MLB has the ghost runner for extra-inning games, not sure if Calvin was consulted.

    " . . . thinking man’s game . . . "

    That’s an observation made by some of the very old time players. Makes me wonder if Watterson ever read The Glory of Their Times.

    I’m not a baseball fan, but the Arizona Diamondbacks in their first few seasons were amazing… they could save a lost game like nobody else. My wife went to a game and I was waiting for her to call to pick her up. I watched the bedtime sports and they said the DBacks had lost. Then when they signed off they said the DBacks had won. That still doesn’t compare with the game against the Braves where the DBacks were down by one in Atlanta, two out and IIRC a runner on first or second. Three strikes against the batter and the Braves headed for the dugout… but their catcher had dropped the last ball! The batter took off for first while the Braves were imagining the taste of beer. The DBacks left the 9th inning tied and came back to win.
