I wanted to touch base and let you know it’s a whole new ball game. I don’t mean to come out of left field and throw you a curveball right off the bat, but you’re in the big leagues now. You need to stop grandstanding and cover your bases, because it’s time to play hardball. You’re batting 1000 so far; let’s see if you can knock it out of the park. I know I caught you off-base, but this is in your wheelhouse, so step up to the plate and swing for the fences. Hopefully, you won’t strike out.
It’s been called America’s pastime, but it is played all over the world. Baseball has influenced fashion (baseball caps), collectibles (cards), and fantasy sports (Rotisserie League). The first networked radio broadcast in North America was of the 1922 World Series. It has been the subject of plays, movies, poems, songs, even an opera. The Abbot and Costello sketch “Who’s on First” has been named the best comedy routine of the 20th century.
March 26 is opening day for Major League Baseball, so be sure you have all of your supplies handy. We suggest a baseball mug!
Baseball fans love their statistics, and can rattle off all the data on their favorite players and teams. It’s pretty impressive.
2. You Had Your Chance
It’s a good rule in baseball and life. Give people a few chances before you take drastic action.
3. Doo Wah
Probably not what Duke Ellington had in mind when he wrote the song, but who knows?
4. Tell Me Later
Get back to me nine innings and three hours from now. I’ll care then, I promise.
5. Context Matters
Just goes to show that there’s an exception to every rule.
These are a few of the great baseball mugs we offer. Buying for the whole team? U.S. orders of two or more mugs get free shipping! Spend it on snacks for the game, instead.
