I tried to resist it, but this got me. 

 

 

I would've found room for some clips from Angels in the Outfield, Little Big League, Hardball, Tiger Town, original Bad News Bears, and the "baseball in film" at the end is unnecessary (yeah, no :censored:, dude. I didn't think we were watching actual baseball highlights), but still well done. 

 

And now I'm going to have to have a baseball movie marathon...

Or maybe instead of a home run contest to settle it after 10 innings, maybe they could even say after the tenth inning both teams will put one less player on the field when they go back on defense to make it easier for one team or the other to score and end the extra innings sooner.  No shortstops after the tenth, after 11 innings no more center fielder etc.  

 

In International Women's Softball every team gets to put one player on second base. Then they have to deal with that.

It's quick and stressful as hell.

I’ve coached exactly one game with this rule, and I absolutely hated it. I get it, it just… changes the complexion of the game too much for me.

Agreed. It's too much like the CFB way of settling overtime.

It's completely illegitimate. I hate it.

 

In an unrelated story, no one told me how ugly Globe Life Field is:

It looks like a cross between a community college and a Quonset hut.

It's nice to see that years after his death, Sir Ken Adam's influence lives on in stadium design.

By the way, what's your least favorite team, the Cardinals or the Royals?

 

No one ever says Royals.

That looks weirdly cheap for a building which cost over a billion dollars.

 

Related - whilst looking up exactly how much got spent on that I discovered this: https://ballparkdigest.com/2019/12/04/texas-rangers-unveil-globe-life-field-dimensions/, which is something I could really do without.

Safeco is the only retractable roof stadium that did it right. Maybe Miller Park too, but that's a big maybe.

What the hell? How does that happen? Mega church looking ass. It is North Texas so not totally out of place.

That thing looks like they dropped an airport hangar in the middle of Arlington and put up some random retro baseball stadium walls around it.

That has got to be the ugliest enclosed ballpark ever built. I mean it looks like it's made of old weather baloons slapped on to an oversized barn. And to think it replaces The Ballpark at Arlington...

 

Even the Metrodome looked better than that.

It looks like it should be the cowboys practice facility and not a billion dollar baseball stadium. A glorified warehouse.

OFFICIAL GUIDE TO BUILDING A STADIUM IN THE 21ST CENTURY:

 

Take a gaudy suburban megachurch, a little bit of big box store, a teaspoon of baseball diamond/hockey or basketball arena/football field depending on the sport, and you are ready to serve.
