Baseball and It's Rules

Quiz Image

Not many people know about baseball. Almost everyone I talk to about it (except my team) say that it's the most boring sport and that they hate it. My response to that is " Really Have you ever tried watching golf?!" but if you think baseball is stupid and boring, then that just means you aren't smart enough to realize the strategic element that us baseball players have. My life is baseball. Yea, I do other sports like basketball, track, volleyball, and football if my mom would let me. Yea, I am a girl and my name is Cassandra. But I play baseball anyways, because I played softball for almost 2 years and I hate it so much. Its not as fun as baseball. Everyone asks why I just don't play softball, and that's my reason why. I'm the only girl in the Davenport East Pony league and its fine with me.
