Getting hit by a baseball

When you love baseball, like I do, it’s easy to romanticize playing it professionally. Two articles by ESPN’s Tim Kurkjian jarred that out of me this morning: one about batters getting hit by pitches, and another about pitchers getting hit by batted balls.

  1. Holey moley, those are traumatic to read. If that’s all you knew about baseball, you’d think it was a violent sport!

    I have a vivid memory of going to a baseball game as a kid and people around me being pelted with series of foul balls. That was a stressful game for me. You really have to pay attention to the game when you could be concussed by a hardball at any moment. Made me appreciate how boring it is to watch baseball on TV. 🙂
