Same here - not really into sports. Had to do some research on this and dig down beneath the rules to find out how baseball really works. Thanks for your feedback! :-)

So you guys don't play baseball at all? Did you ever see the movie called Million Dollar ARm? Where they go into India recruiting kids that play cricket to be baseball pitchers. It's a very interesting movie.

Hi Andrea. Some of us play baseball, but it's a minor sport. Mostly we play football (or soccer as you know it). Never saw the film you mentioned, but I do remember watching "a league of their own".
