“Baseball is simple, but never easy.”
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!
