Baseball and sci-fi


It may be the great American past time, but it doesn’t always lend itself to science fiction. Normally when you think of sports in sci-fi it’s well some sort of a twisted version of a more violent sport. You know something lethal or potentially so. I guess that says the writers of those films didn’t have a great view of humanity although there always been an audience for violent games. With that last part in mind there doesn’t seem to be place for baseball in the sci-fi realm unless time travel is involved or they just take parts of the sport and use it in a different way. Maybe the games slow pace and generally non-violent action doesn’t lend itself to the genre. Whatever the case I was able to scrape up enough baseball oriented episodes this week and there is still one more coming up on Saturday.
