The Other Side
The other night, while watching a baseball game, one of the announcers mentioned that he'd been thinking about the game of baseball with only one pitch per batter.
"What if they changed the rules," he said, and each at bat was just one pitch." Intriguing, not to mention the game would certainly speed up. You miss, you're out. A ball, you walk. Foul ball, you're out. Really intriguing now.
I fear that could happen one day. After all, the case for faster, quicker, non-stop everything is already being made. From trains to cars to internet service...why not baseball?
But what's lost? Watching a game of baseball, like fishing the Metolius River is never the same. Something you've never seen before can happen any time.
