    Guessing it's meant to be a viral "get attention by being random" ad.

    It's a joke.

    Sorry, it's 2020, the distinction between genuine, joke, sarcasm and troll is basically nonexistent. Especially when connected to an actual brand.

    Huh, who's the first announcer in that clip? Sounds exactly like Duane Kuiper, one of the SF Giants casters.
    e: apparently it was Jon Miller, the Giants' radio play by play announcer. Maybe I was confusing them. They have very similar voices.

    Man I remember in the 90s, back when I tracked baseball, it was the rarest occurrence in the game, quite a bit under the inside the park grand slam, and I think there were 12 (unassisted triple plays) then.

    That's made rare more by the very specific conditions you need to be put in to pull it off more than by astounding personal skill.

    I watched a ton of Braves baseball in the 90s and one of my favorite players was Rafael Belliard. That's a name most people will never recognize. Dude was 5'6" and ~160 pounds. He was a lifetime .221 hitter and played for 17 years. You might be asking yourself, how a career .221 hitter play for so long?! Well, he always tracked down everything hit his way and got the out or turned a double play. It was virtually impossible for a ball to get by him. He was so good, that he would be brought in as a "defensive closer" in the 7-8th inning if the Braves had a lead.

    To put him in comparison with a name you might know; Ozzie Smith had a .966 fielding percentage. Belliard had a .977 fielding percentage.

    So with all that story behind you, here's my favorite baseball moment of all time (the announcers and the reactions say it all):


    I watched that moment on TV live with a friend of mine. We were jumping and screaming in pure joy.

    I think when I first heard about the unassisted triple play, they were all shorts and second basemen? It's theoretically possible for a third baseman to get it, but a runner on third would need to be extremely reckless to try that with 0 outs.

I just wish there was a way to maybe trim it down a bit. Like lose 20% of the time it takes to play a full game. I can only deal with a game for about 5-6 innings before I'm done. Maybe it's the calm that makes these moments all the more special though. I'm not sure.

    Baseball is this weird microcosm of middle school for me. I can't stand watching it on TV, it's just too slow. Clips are great though.

    But bring me to a park or a stadium where people are playing baseball, and my whole world changes and I'm 12 years old again, except now I get to drink beer. It's amazing.

    I kind of love that baseball is super slow

    But I only love it when I'm actually there, at the stadium. Then it's like a weird outdoor picnic with a big crowd where we're all eating too-expensive hot dogs and getting really excited very occasionally

    there are lots of reasons. at its most basic (imo) it's fun seeing people be really good at something that takes a lot of skill. also, humans are naturally competitive and tribal, and sports let us express that and build a sense of community in a (relatively) safe and healthy way. ultimately that's really all there is to it.

    you can also get into the fact that some people find joy in stats and numbers and patterns, or understanding complex strategies and seeing them play out, or the motivational storylines of players overcoming hardships and achieving their goals, or just the visceral feedback of the bat-crack of a big homerun or the swish of a perfect three-point shot.

    there's a ton of toxic attitudes and behavior surrounding sports at every level and always has been, but the fundamental idea of sports and healthy competition is extremely human.

    My idea for improving baseball would be as follows:
    • 108 game season. That's four, 3-game series against each other team in the division (48 games total). Then 2, 3-game series against each other team in the other two divisions (60 games total). No interleague play.
    • 7 inning games. Gives both line-ups two chances to hit and the top of the order three chances. Makes starting pitching even more important and cuts down on time consuming pitching changes.
    • Keep the DH standard and the extra innings base-runner at 2nd rules. More offensive opportunities given less innings to play and faster endings to games.

    If we wanted interleague play make it one, 3-game series against all other non-divisional teams in your league and one, 2-game series against every team in the opposing league (48+30+30). Home/Away alternates each year (ex. Yankees home vs Dodgers 2020 and away in 2021).

    These changes could easily get games down to about 2 hours or so. It would still be enough games to get realistic results and allow for "hot streaks". A shorter season would have less overlap with football.

    When I was in Japan, we were staying with some of my wife's friends, and while we were hanging out, snacking, making dinner, their grandma was watching baseball on tv.

    At one point I asked if she was watching highlights of a game that happened earlier, but it turns out it was a live full game. They have managed to trim so much fluff out of baseball in Japan. There is a maximum of like 30 seconds between an out or a hit before the next pitch, and between innings or changeovers is a minute or so. I swear an entire game lasts MAYBE an hour including interviews and commercials and what not. It is so incredibly streamlined and an absolute joy.

    you probably already know this, but if you ever get back to Japan and have a chance, you should definitely go to a baseball game. Japanese fans are serious about that shit. I got to go to a Hanshin Tigers game in Osaka and it was an absolute trip. People had giant 20-foot flags, entire brass sections, it was nuts.
