Everything I Really Need to Know I Learned from Baseball

June 10, 2012 by Beth Hess

Written in 1994, recently pulled from the archives — aka, my garage.

  • People will give you all kinds of pitches — wait for the good ones
  • Sometimes you need your own language to understand the game (ie. “The Bird is Flying”)
  • It really is more than just a game
  • The cheapest seats may be the best in the house
  • Once in a while we all need a reliever
  • You have to take your foot off first to reach second
  • You gotta take a swing at it
  • A hot dog with nachos is a well-balanced meal
  • Sometimes you have to sit and wait out a storm
  • Fair-weathered fans are part of the deal, but the best will stick with you through any season or slump
  • No one bats 1.000

    Beth, Phil would really enjoy this one. We did “endure” a 12 inning game in Baltimore in April, 43 degrees, but it was the last time Mariano Rivero played…for a while anyway…
    I love your baseball brain!!
