I'm a sad case because I'm a Brit who likes baseball. I've watched it at Fenway Park and Pac Bell Park (now AT&T Park) so it follows that I follow the Red Sox and the Giants.
I also watch an absurd amount of cricket.
Here's a thought.....baseball out fielders throw the ball at the bases with a straight trajectory....whilst there counterparts tend to throw it in an arch.
Why don't cricket fielders aim to bounce their returns so that they hit the wicket. If they did this every time they fielded the ball - even when there's no run - they would become more skilful......
