The Immaculate Inning

I love baseball. The last time I followed it, though, Maury Wills was stealing bases and Sandy Koufax was striking out batters. But, I think what I love about baseball is its serenity and meditative, almost trance-like pace. I know they've had their moments, but compared to football and hockey, for example, baseball is a peaceful sport.

Wikipedia has the story about The Immaculate Inning.


  1. I could never stand in front of an incoming object traveling at 90+ MPH, with the intent of striking it with a blunt object in a way that sends it hurtling at more people, anywhere near peaceful.

  2. I saw a few of those on television live when they happened. Fun stuff.

  3. Heh, I find baseball boring as hell for the very reasons you love it.

    It's particularly difficult to watch on TV.
