My Favorite Photos: Baseball at the Carnival

 For the last two years we've been to the local carnival, we never saw the baseball throw game. I at first though this one was the one where you guess the speed of your final throw. But no, you're graded on how fast you throw it.
Men have to throw at least 56 mph to get the prize that isn't the smallest. I tried twice to get even close, and I made it at 54 mph. So I now have two baseball bats, which I plan to give to my two little nephews.

Adam!
Either you are small is statue or that bat is huge???
How in hell's name will your nephews be able to swing those
sized bats???
Or have you used trick photography?

Baseball is only a minor sport here in Australia,
but when the grand final is on, the bars that cater for
backpackers and younger tourists are at bursting point
with extremely loud young American baseball "fanatics".
Same with the basketball and footballs finals.
Everyone seems to have tons of fun - Americans, Australians
and others from other countries - quite a time honoured ritual
these days.
Cheers

They have those "speed pitch" things at the baseball stadiums.
