Baseball Under 50 Degrees? Forgetaboutit!
Here are four reasons I don’t want to play baseball when the temperature dips below 50 degrees.
1.) I’m a Snowman – standing completely still….by myself….in a field….that is cold.
2.) It’s Not Jamming – If I hit one off the handle, I simply want to cry.
3.) Brain Freeze – Baseball is a mental game with the count, base runners and outs. When it’s 42 degrees and a pop up comes to me, I catch it and head straight to the dug out.
4.) No Home Runs – Cold weather helps pitchers. Pitches are always moving. The cold weather helps their curve and velocity. It shortens the distance of hit balls.
Now if it was a snow ball fight, that’s a different story.
