  • Countdown to Pitchers & Catchers Reporting; Everything you *LOVE* about Baseball

    CBS Sportsline has the countdown clock right here:

    http://www.sportsline.com/mlb/

    Please name everything you love about baseball. From the food, the "STRIIIIIIIIIIIIIKE" by the ump, the sound of a ball getting the covers knocked off of it, the thrill of the 2-1 win, agony of the postseason loss. Everything about baseball that you love to think about, please post it here!

    The food is terrible and overpriced, however I'm a college student so I've become used to it.

                watching the ivy turn from brown to green
                walking from the concourse into the stands to catch that first glimpse of the diamond
                making fun of drunk fans
                walk-off home runs
                the look on a batter's face when he's been frozen by nasty hook

                    Sitting near a concession stand that has Sbarro pizza (this is at Shea)

                    Extra innings

                    The lack of a time limit

                      A tailor-made 6-4-3.

                          The stripes of sunlight and shadow on the outfield in the evening;

                          Driving home from work with the car windows down and the game on the radio;

                          Seeing players talking and laughing around the cage at batting practice;

                          Don and Jerry;

                          Keeping score;

                          The crack! of the bat, that you feel in your heart and bones as well as hear;

                          Wakefield's knuckleball, when it's working well;

                          The guy who yells "PEA-NUTS!" in a clear baritone at Fenway;

                          Oh man.... I can't list everything! Sights and sounds... I've missed it so! Jeez, winter is so long!

                            I think one of my favourite things about baseball is that, in most sports, the only way to get things done is with power. But in baseball, you have a choice of methods. Power or contact. The bunt, the sacrifice fly, and the hit-and-run. Power pitching or finesse pitching.

                            Also:
                            -NO CLOCK
                            -extra innings
                            -pitching duels
                            -walk-offs
                            -the knuckleball
                            -Satchel Paige
                            -the most statistics ever about anything
                            -no penalties
                            -8-team playoffs
                            -nicknames
                            -catching foul balls
                            -the "Ice...Cold...Beer" guy at the skydome
                            -162 days on, 20 days off
                            -Yogi Berra
                            -no touchdown dances

                              go jays, I agree on the 'Ice...Cold...Beer' guy too. He's a staple of Blue Jays baseball for me.
