What Holds Baseball Together Storm After Storm?
The Barn Door and Baseball Both Need Strong Hinges To Weather Storms
Baseball Hinges absolutely baseball has hinges every game ever played has a determining factor: Turning point. Middle English heng, akin to Middle Dutch henge hook,Old English hangian to hang.
Every game of baseball scores runs on some turning point or hangs in the balance till one team scores more runs than the other in any given 6,7,9 or extra innings game. It all hinges on the runs scored.
Most all of other sports generally use a clock; in the most other team sports as a rule, play is less individual and more collective; and in none of them is the variation between playing fields nearly as substantial or important.
In clock-limited sports, games often end with a team that holds the lead killing the clock rather than competing aggressively against the opposing team. In contrast, baseball has no clock; a team cannot win without getting the last batter out and rallies are not constrained by time
"Thinker I'm Joining You Now I Have A Notion To Take Like You And Do Some Thinking. It Is Hard For Me To Figure This Baseball Game Hinges Jingle."
"But There Is Some Truth To This Thing Which Confirms That Every Games Winner Hinges On The Most Runs Scored."
Well! my good buddy talking baseball you did not ask but I've thought about this thing and I have concluded it now belongs within our Baseball Lingo group of baseball talk and we could recognize the use of baseball hinges as such.
There is a parallel those baseball teams with the boys who have their hitting bats ready and can blast or figuratively knock the hinges off the barn door score runs and win.
The losing team watching those hosses round the bases score many runs running free it is too late to close the barn door the game is over. The hinges holding up the barn door may become rusty and creak during a free swinging door opened on purpose or blown open with a strong wind usually still holds fast. It may creak and it may groan but it holds that door till kingdom come.
Baseball our once grand and proud National Pastime has baseball hinges as strong as those straps of steel nailed to the barn door. Game after game these many years with strong winds of bad vibes of a country enduring civil strife, world wars faught on foreign soil, strikes borne from owners and the players yet still it carries and proudly waves those pennant streaming and World Series winning flags flying.
Baseball and the game of baseball hinges not on the things visible and often discussed such as ownership, players salary,and even the records obtained by the heroes of the games it is nailed tight by the fans as a whole across our land.
Therein lies the baseball hinges which has held the game together throughout storm after storm of matters for country or matters only of baseball which is baseballs loyal fans.
Since the 1980's baseball has taken on even more statistical and records accountability of play called Sabermatics.
Sabermetrics refers to the field of baseball statistical study and the development of new statistics and analytical tools. The term is also used to refer directly to new statistics themselves. The term was coined around 1980 by one of the field's leading proponents, Bill James, and derives from the Society for American Baseball Research (SABR).
The growing popularity of sabermetrics since the early 1980s has brought more attention to two batting statistics that sabermetricians argue are much better gauges of a batter's skill than batting average:
On-base percentage measures a batter's ability to get on base. It is calculated by taking the sum of the batter's successes in getting on base (hits plus walks plus hit by pitches) and dividing that by the batter's total plate appearances (at bats plus walks plus hit by pitches plus sacrifice flies), except for sacrifice bunts.
Slugging percentage measures a batter's ability to hit for power. It is calculated by taking the batter's total bases (one per each single, two per double, three per triple, and four per home run) and dividing that by the batter's at bats.
Some of the new statistics devised by sabermetricians have gained wide use:
On-base plus slugging (OPS) measures a batter's overall ability. It is calculated by adding the batter's on-base percentage and slugging percentage.
Walks plus hits per inning pitched (WHIP) measures a pitcher's ability at preventing hitters from reaching base. It is calculated exactly as its name suggests.
