    50 runs in 2 games. Wonder if the Brits got the wrong impression about our national pastime.

    Here’s a little tidbit. The Home plate umpire for the first game in London lives exactly across the street from me. Can’t wait to ask him how much of a thrill it was to call the longest game in MLB history for a 9 inning game. Ed Hickox

    So, wing—think you can get him to explain the difference between “rule book strike zone”, “umpires strike zone”, and “K-Zone strike zone”???;)

    Love to Horns but he let it be known no baseball talk. He is hardly ever home though.

    So like cricket with less scoring and not a lot less scoring?

    If you want a prime example of Churchill’s statement (I think it was him) that England and the US are two countries divided by a common language—-read a Brit newspaper story about a cricket match. You can understand every word and not understand anything they are talking about.
