I'm a simple fan who enjoys the little things in sports. An infield, freshly watered down in anticipation of nine innings of baseball. Rolling a ball down the line before the game to see which way the dirt guides the ball. I love that the foul poles and lines are named this way, yet if the ball hits either one it is fair. I love walking into the ballpark and catching a glimpse of the fresh green grass mowed in harmony while becoming intoxicated by the various smells a ballpark brings. Grilled onions on my hot dog, an ice cold beer just in time for batting practice and peanuts in the fourth inning. I love that the traditional organ hasn't been replaced in most ballparks. I don't believe pitchers should also be hitters. Hall-of-Fame hitters would not be consistent batting once every five days, yet a pitcher is expected to produce? If you want pitchers to bat then put them in right field the other four days in-between starts. Let me ask you something else, if the heart of the opposition's order is coming up in the eighth inning, wouldn't it be wise to use your closer at that moment instead of the ninth against lesser hitters? Shouldn't he also get the save? Baseball is the greatest sport in the world because of little things such as these.
