Some Crazy Things about the Diamond Game

THE Game...The Diamond Game.  Softball and Baseball....some differences but most things are similar.  Some of the crazy similarities of the Diamond Game...


  • The pole down the left and right field lines are called the Foul Poles but when the ball hits a foul pole it is fair?
  • The same as the foul lines.  Hit a foul line and the ball is fair?
  • A hitter can hit the ball really hard with a near perfect swing but get out.
  • A hitter can have a horrible swing and barely hit the ball and get a hit.
  • It is possible, and does happen, to strike out three hitters in an inning and then give up a run after the third strike out.
  • It is possible, and does happen, for a hitter to strike out in the at bat and not be out and then score.
  • A pitcher can throw a no hitter and lose the game.
  • A pitcher can give up a ton of runs and still win the game.
  • The softball isn't really very soft.
  • Is a left handed glove or a right handed glove...is it what hand you wear it on or what hand you throw the ball with?   
  • A left handed hitter hits the ball on the same side of the field as the right fielder.

This is all I have for today.  You have any?
