How to understand baseball stats in a game

Have you ever noticed the people at a baseball game who look like they’re taking notes? That’s the lost art of scorekeeping and it’s key in keeping track of every single play on the baseball field and recorded as a stat.

Stats are everything in baseball and rooted in the deep traditions of the game. So for nearly every play imaginable, a stat is sure to exist.

Events like, “Pinch runner who has hit more than two home runs during a game wearing the No. 6” seems like information overload, but many stats like this are crucial to the game.

Get Ready for Spring Training with Gear That Doesn’t Suck

The approach of the Super Bowl means that baseball season and Spring Training is just around the corner. And one of the best parts of an upcoming season is outfitting your closet with some new team gear.

Besides the All Star Game and postseason push, Spring Training is the most exciting time of the year for fans of America’s past-time. It’s also the time of year when you start getting your Spring Training schedule set in stone. One of the aspects that’s usually forgotten in the midst of planning hotels and games is getting the new gear to rock while seeing your favorite players.

One of my favorite companies for years has been a retailer called Majestic Athletic. They don’t have a traditional brick-and-mortar store, if you look on the tags of the gear you already own, you probably own one of their shirts.

As a female fan, the reason why I’ve loved them for quite some time is because they were one of the first companies to make form-fitting and affordable baseball shirts that were in my team’s colors. So while you’ll have the Victoria’s Secret of the world that will try to blind you with their baseball gear, companies like Majestic have been making the gear you’ll actually wear for years to come.

While we won’t show you the any Spring Training selections for baseball pants (whoever invented baseball pants, bless you) but we do have a lot of great options to outfit your closet when you’re ready to hit the road to catch a game.
