Baseball is America's great pastime, and college ball is no exception. I'll be honest with y'all, I've never associated myself with baseball, short of playing t-ball and spending a copious amount of time watching The Sandlot. But after three years of attending Texas Tech, I decided to attend a baseball game. And you know what? It was great.
Like I said before, I didn't know a lick about baseball before this season. But thanks to my knowledgeable friends, I quickly learned the ins and outs of the sport. I mean I knew what a strike was (if you don't, it's when the dude with the bat swings at the ball and misses, but you should know that already. I hope.) but an infield fly? A walk-off homerun? What? Thankfully my friends were patient with me, and googling the subject didn't hurt either. Once you figure out the sport, it makes if fun to watch. But that's the great thing about baseball, you don't have to watch it the entire time you're there.
Going to baseball games is fun cause you don't have to watch the game to have fun. You can go and hang out with your friends, snapchat that your at the game, get something to eat, watch a little ball, and repeat. It's also perfect weather for tanning, and also for burning, so bring some sunscreen. It's also a great date idea so dudes y'all should consider taking your girl out to the ball game. Dan Law Field has it's own perks, including $1 Hot Dog days, and bring your dog to the game. Sure it's not football, and you can't throw tortillas, but it's still a great sport on its own.
I'm glad I started going to baseball games, and I hope you will too. Don't sleep on baseball.
