Call me a traditionalist…

June 22, 2005 | Baseball, I Kid You Not | By: Mark VandeWettering

BaseballWhen it comes to most things, I’m about as geeky and gonzo for gizmos as you could possibly imagine, but in some things, I’m a bit of a purist. It’s hard to argue with a charcoal fire for cooking salmon and steaks. It’s hard argue with roses and diamonds for an annivery gift. And baseball needs nothing to jazz it up.

That’s why I read this Kansas City Star article with genuine horror. The first two innings of the July 16th game between minor league teams the Kansas City T-Bones and the Schaumberg Flyers will be played on Xbox. Inning three will begin with the real teams taking the field to play the rest of the game.


The T-bones director of community relations:

“Everybody in the world is going to want to do this after us,” Williams said.

Truly, the Apocalypse cannot be far away.
