Baseball vs. The Elements

Baseball teams play baseball games against other baseball teams. That’s the whole deal with that. We look at the schedule and say to ourselves or to those around us, “My team is up against this other team.” But sometimes, the real opponent is not the other team. The real opponent can be the Sun or the Wind or even the Snow. Collectively, they are known as The Elements, and they should not be discounted when considering all the factors that decide the victor of a baseball contest. The Elements are always looming, ready to change fate at any given moment, as we can observe here.

Another thing to consider is the placement of various features of the field. In the bottom GIF, we see that Edwin Encarnacion is battling the sun while attempting to catch a Kendrys Morales popup. But the sun is not the only thing he must battle. He is shouting, “I got it! I got it!” until the critical moment at which he is no longer shouting but is asking himself quietly, “aw what the heck who put this mound here” Thankfully, he did not get injured on the play. Thankfully, nobody got injured on either play. There have been tons of baseball injuries lately. Let’s not have more of them happen because of the Sun or A Mound, Suddenly.
