A frozen rope is baseball slang for a hard line drive hit by a batter. I like the colorful terns found in baseball slang. Know what the hot corner is? It is third base, makes sense. This is the corner of the diamond that gets a lot of hot action.
Is there anything better than spending a warm afternoon in the baseball bleachers watching the boys of summer go at it? It can be a very subtle game with many illusive actions and behaviors. It doesn't wear well on TV, so set up to the ticket booth for a real ride.
It can be enjoyed by kids of 7 or 8 as well as old men past 80. And unlike many sports, we can play it. Maybe not well but certainly with enjoyment.
So as Babe Ruth said "Baseball was, is, and always will be to me the best game in the world."
And this video says it all...
