Being a baseball fan in the UK, the three most unoriginal questions that I get asked are:
- “Why is it called the World Series?”
- “Why do they never hit the ball?”
- “That’s just like rounders, isn’t it?”
I should probably do more to challenge people’s preconceptions of the game.
My baseball team of choice is the San Francisco Giants. I also follow West Bromwich Albion F.C., though somewhat less than I used to, and try to cast an eye on other sporting events, anything from college basketball’s March Madness to the Snooker Shoot-Out.
I write about whatever happens to interest me at the time. Sometimes my posts can be quite short, either because I don’t have time to write more expansively or simply because I can’t think of much to say.
