Running and throwing

with 6 comments

The baseball season is over. St Louis Cardinals are world champions. Well done them. Here’s a couple more baseball-related things that I’ve done:

73,080 bases in 2006
Adding together the total number of bases ran by all the players on all the teams throughout the season. Working out how many miles that is (over 1.245 miles), and marking out how big a baseball diamond that would be.

716,083 pitches in 2006
Similarly, adding together all the pitches thrown, and mapping them as one continuous line. From St Louis, Missouri to the outskirts of Mumbai, India.

  2. There’s no such thing as a nerd – just somebody devoted to their chosen pursuit. ;)

    For me, that’s currently my old scooter.
