Four ways to spot a ballplayer who isn’t paying attention

Baseball—like Life—is just about as boring or interesting as you choose to make it. If the only thing that excites you is a home run and nobody’s hit one in a while, baseball can be pretty boring. But if you’re paying attention and you notice that the umpire refused to call that borderline 1-1 pitch a strike and now the count’s 2-1 instead of 1-2 and you know 2-1 is a fastball count and a good time to put on the hit and run and the guy on first and the guy at the plate are a good hit and run combination—if you pay attention like that, baseball can be pretty interesting.
