Yep, that’s right; we are destined to fail at this game. I can’t think of any other sport where failure is actually as good as it can be in baseball. As hypercritical as that last sentence is, it is also the truth. As long as you play this game, you will FAIL! That’s right, I will say it again, YOU. WILL. FAIL!
Well then why do we play it? That is a question only the eyes of the beholder can answer. Not sure if this makes sense…we do something knowing full well that if we are successful 30 per cent of the time (i.e. as a hitter), we can be happy! Wow, how captivating baseball must be to enjoy failing like we do.
