Baseball: A US institution?
Share This Article:
Baseball is just like rounders except at the end Lynrd Skynyrd play a concert, and generally it doesn’t tend to start raining half way through. The other week I was given the absolute privilege of being able to go along to ‘the ball game’ with a real American family. I didn’t know what to make of it to be honest. There was a huge amount of hype and all these Americans seemed to be getting very excited over what was essentially rounders. There’s lots of music and gigantic screens in which over the top graphics shouting things like ‘home run!’ and ‘that’s a hit!’ To be honest, I don’t understand what the point is in saying that it was a hit. I mean, surely, that’s the most basic need for a Baseball player to be able to do? He’s being paid professionally to hit balls across a field using some wood, and if he can’t even do that then there is no point in him even being on the team.
