friday april 24

today i played a game of pickup baseball with some friends. with no bat and only three- or four-person teams, we spent a lot of time experimenting with the best way to simulate "hitting." eventually we settled on the batter closing his eyes and counting to five (so as not to know where exactly the fielders were), then throwing the ball into the field with his non-throwing hand (reducing the potential for many long balls). it worked surprisingly well.
