“Baseball is simple, but never easy.”                             

-Roger Angell

Baseball is probably the  most simplistic sport.  You throw the ball, you catch the ball.   You hit, run around a couple bases, and don’t have to worry about a clock.  Yet it’s never as easy as it seems.  Try and hit a 100mph heater coming at you.  Try hitting a 55mph ball – Why is it that you can field so many balls in a row and all of  a sudden miss a crucial  but routine play?  Why does the ball just pop out of your glove?  Why can’t you hit the ball well in a slump? There’s something unique to this relaxed paced game that can be extremely joyful yet excrutiatingly (is that a word?) frustrating!
