3. They’re killer athletes
Baseball can be deceptively boring at times. It seems like the players do quite a bit of standing (and sitting) around, waiting for the ball to come their way, someone to try to steal a base or anticipating their turn up at bat. Oh, and they adjust their crotches and spit a lot. Despite all this, baseball is a sport that requires incredible athleticism and strength. Baseball involves running, jumping, leaping, sliding, stretching, swinging, and crouching, on top of patience and a knack for good timing and strategy. That sounds like a well-rounded athlete to us!
