I'm already discovering the awesomeness of baseball and becoming a "Major" fan, but this weekend I bought my sons some baseball gloves and we went and found a nice little league sized ballpark. We had SO much fun. Did a little of everything, pitched, caught, hit. The fences were 200 feet at the shortest distance but the mound looked to be the standard 90'. I have a newfound appreciation for MLB players and their skills. I'm not bad at making contact(granted I'm not getting mlb type pitches) but getting distance was hard. I wonder if I had an adult throwing me fastballs how much that could have helped. Probably less contact and more swings at air, but surely a faster thrown ball would result in further travel when hit.
